Yes. I can just replace the whole formula, but I *should be able to edit
the stinker.

After pressing f2, when I try to move the cursor, JAWS reads the whole
stinkin' formula, but does not move character by character to allow
editing.

the latest version of JAWS2018 and 2019 has broken the ability to
edit a formula in an Excel spreadsheet ... again. the fix in earlier
versions of JAWS was to modify the JAWS Excel settings, insert+number
row 6. Go to text processing, general, Enhanced Edit Support, and be
sure
it was unchecked.
Now, whether I check or uncheck enhanced edit support, I cannot edit
a formula in Excel.

Does anyone know a way to do this?

thanks,
