    The keyboard sticks while using Excel in MS office 2004. This is a very odd situation. I have a user that when she is working on her computer, the keyboard will stick when she is working in Excel. The keyboard is working as usual when she is in any other apps on the MacBook. The MacBook is running Leopard 10.5.6(?).
    I have not come across any other desktops, laptops running Excel or any other OS that have encountered this problem.
    Has anyone encountered anything similar in Excel or any other application.
    Thanks
    Don

    What does "the keyboard sticks" mean to you? It could mean a few different things, so we need your definition.

    I have data entry problems with Excel, and no other application. I will start to type a number, and usually when this happens, only the first digit I type appears on the screen. I cannot type anything else until I use the File > Save command.

    I just visited with her and she said once she gets into Excel on her MacBook all she can use is the mouse. None of the keys will work.

    No, but I will have to try that next week, when I am back on campus. It just doesn't make any sense with the problem only in Excel.
    Thanks for the suggestion. Easy solution if it works.

    Yeah, that's similar to what I described:

    But she can't get the keyboard to work at all, or didn't try this?

    Sure it does, if the problem is Excel.
