More information

When the all-capital-letters problem occurs, the CAPS LOCK key light on the keyboard is not turned on. Pressing CAPS LOCK turns the CAPS LOCK light on or off; however, this key has no effect on typing in a Microsoft Graph 2000 Chart.

If the SHIFT key sticks on your keyboard, and you click with your mouse in your chart, cells will be selected starting from the cell in which the SHIFT key stuck. If you type with the cells selected, data contained in the cells may be lost. Please note that this is not a cause or symptom of the problem discussed in this article.
