I find it impossible to keep "window content in view".
The at all times current sheet kind of scrolls up automatically - sort of a Matrix effect in reverse (you know numbers falling down the screen).
Of course the problem only pertains to larger/longer sheets which extends beyond the window size.
Any ideas as to what might be the problem?
No Sir, and there aint no matchstick crumbles or anything else stuck in the scroll btn.
The problem only pertains to the web app and its all spreadsheets
I'm having the exact same issue. As soon as I open a spreadsheet and scroll down or up it automatically starts to scroll back to the top (or left if I scrolled right and both if I scroll down and to the right). There are no issues with my computer such as Scroll Lock or the like, so no need to waste time asking if that is it.
I've been unable to log on to the community with my original acount the last couple of days, so i've created an alternative acount to be able to answer the question.
My excel file is 764 kb so well under the limits.
Uhhh... and I can also get it to scroll diagonally.... funky effect...nut very usefull though....
I'll check to see if the problem is there on the other computers.... I'll post back shortly
Hi Again Bob,
Well I found the "problem". I was using Chrome.....silly me I should have known :P
Running Excel webapp in IE Explorer doesn't display the same behaviour. So I guess I'll just have to use IE Explorer whenever I want to work on my excel files online....
problem solved, or almost anyway ;)
have a nice day
I too am having this issue and would like to know if there is a fix so I can continue to use Google Chrome as I would rather use that as my web browser?
I haven't found any work arounds...sorry to say.
thanks for the reply, hopefully Microsoft have Bob???
Thank you for your replies. As I have been researching this issue I found that it may be a limitation with the browsers. Although they are supported by SharePoint there are limitations to them as documented in the following TechNet article.
Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist you with.
I’m just checking into see if you have anything further that you need assistance with, please let me know as I will only be watching this thread for a few more days.
