I am having problems with the sum formula in Excel 2002.
I take a straight copy of data in an acess database (not
an export) and paste it into an excel spreadsheet.

I can not seem to format the cells nor can I use the Sum
formula to calculate.  If I manually re-type all the
numeric value these problems seem to disappear.

The problems seem to have started when Access XP was
installed onto the PC but niether removing Access no re-
installing the PC has worked to correct this problem.

Has anyone else seen something similar?
