Hello

I do not use Microsoft Excel much at work but I do use 2010 on my home PC.

I am currently dictating numbers into the version on my office PC (Office 365) and I cannot do what I do on my own PC-for example, [123 Down], which enters 123 and then moves down one cell.

I am currently using Dragon 15.3.

Thanks

There are four Dragon commands for Excel that only work when the keyboard is NOT in "Scroll Lock" mode. So if you have inadvertently activated the mode, press the Scroll Lock key and try again.

The four commands are:

<number> down
<number> up
<number> left
<number> right

Unfortunately, that is not it- scroll lock was not on. Also, it's not recognising the commands i.e., if I say "one down" Dragon recognises dictation "1 down".

Check if the Natural Language commands for Excel are enabled:

Options > Commands > More Commands > Enable Microsoft Excel commands [checked]

Those options are already enabled

Exit Dragon, close every application, restart your computer, restart Dragon, and try again.

Instead of using a pre-existing spreadsheet, create a new one, and try again.

Experiment with numbers with more syllables and spoken in their fullest form, e.g., "101 down" ("one hundred and one down" rather than "one zero one down" or "one hundred one down".)

Also try it with fractions "sixty seven point seven one down"

And with currencies: "sixty seven euros down" and "seventy six pounds down."

Try the other directions: "two hundred right," "three hundred up", etc.

If all of these tests fail, I'm out of ideas!

Okay it's fixed but I am confused! It's working today but it definitely wasn't working yesterday!

Thanks

There is no way to know what went afoul. But my vote is that a reboot fixed the problem.
