When you create a new Excel spreadsheet, it contains page headers. If you want to get rid of the page header, follow these steps:

  1. Select Page Setup from the File menu. This displays the Page Setup dialog box.
  2. Make sure the Header/Footer tab is selected. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Header/Footer tab of the Page Setup dialog box.

  4. Using the Header drop-down list, select the very top predefined header. This appears as (none).
  5. Click on OK to close the Page Setup dialog box.

Hello, I am having issues with a spreadsheet, where I am trying to do a sum formula, however when I do the formula it notifies me as a header as im pulling it from the other tabs. How do I get rid of it so that it adds up the amounts correctly and doesn't stay as 0.

thank you
