Windows 7: Why can't I change a "t" into a "T"?

19 Jan 2010   #11

Win7 Ultimate, x64

I think this is a symptom of the fact that Windows is (and always has been) case insensitive. It will allow you to name a file "test" or "TEST" but wll not allow two files in the same folder, one named "test" and the other "TEST".

I've encountered the "problem" described by the OP and the only solution I have been able to come up with is to rename "test" to something completely different, for example, "est" and then to "TEST".

Just tested in Excel 2010 beta, reports 6. Weird Excel 2007 bug?

I only saw it happen once, in Excel 2003. The numbers in question were not 1, 2, and 3--I mentioned those only as an example--but they were ordinary directly entered numbers.

I could never replicate the problem in another file, but in that particular Excel file, I could never get rid of it. It was a large and ornate file, so I couldn't just start over. I did start over on the specific worksheet in that file, but it didn't help, nor did copying, renaming, etc, etc.

I remember taking a gander in Google at Excel issues, and there are sites mentioning stuff like this. I can understand that considering the jillion lines of code in the program--it will always be a work in progress.
