Excel not updating

However, you can change the precision of calculations so that Excel uses the displayed value instead of the stored value when it recalculates formulas.

Note: If a worksheet contains a formula that is linked to a worksheet that has not been recalculated and you update that link, Excel displays a message stating that the source worksheet is not completely recalculated.

To update the link with the current value stored on the source worksheet, even though the value might not be correct, click OK.

To cancel updating the link and use the previous value obtained from the source worksheet, click Cancel.

Recalculate formulas that have changed since the last calculation, and formulas dependent on them, in all open workbooks.

Excel temporarily interrupts calculation to carry out the other commands or actions and then resumes calculation.

The calculation process may take more time if the workbook contains a large number of formulas, or if the worksheets contain data tables or functions that automatically recalculate every time the workbook is recalculated.

Iteration is the repeated recalculation of a worksheet until a specific numeric condition is met.

Excel cannot automatically calculate a formula that refers to the cell — either directly or indirectly — that contains the formula. If a formula refers back to one of its own cells, you must determine how many times the formula should recalculate. However, you can control the maximum number of iterations and the amount of acceptable change.

This is the default behavior when you first open a workbook and when you are editing a workbook.

However, you can control when and how Excel recalculates formulas.

Precision is a measure of the degree of accuracy for a calculation.
