Microsoft Excel – disabled fill handle

I was at client site last week and someone was unable to use their fill handle. If this ever happens to you, here’s how to get round it.

If using Microsoft Excel 2010, click File – Options then go to the Advanced options. Check the Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop box in the Editing options section. Click OK.

If using Microsoft Excel 2007, click the Office button, then click Excel Options. Go to the Advanced options. Check the Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop box in the Editing options section. Click OK.

If using Microsoft Excel 2003, click Tools – Options. Go to the Edit tab. Check the Allow cell drag and drop check box. Click OK.
