Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new sheet in MS excel 2007
  2. Add a simple formula to a cell and press enter
  3. Use arrow keys to return to the cell with the formula

Actual behavior:

The result of the formula is reported (calculated value). "has formula" is not announced.
Pressing F2 allows us to confirm the presence of the formula.

Expected behavior:

"has formula" should be announced.

Some alternatives that can be used to work around this issue can be found in #7899. Specifically, pressing control + ` (accent grave) in excel will toggle between showing formulae in (all) cells rather than the result.

Does inserting a comment on the cell, cause NVDA to announce "has comment"? If not, I am guessing this is a broader problem where NVDA is not able to inject into Excel at all.

No, "has comment" is also not reported. The NVDA log contains the following:

The most relevant thing in the log seems to be (there a few similar such errors):

DEBUGWARNING - eventHandler.executeEvent (14:31:39.773):

Hi.

NVDA no longer causes Excel 2007 to crash or refuses to report if a cell has a formular.
Should be corrected to: NVDA no longer causes Excel 2007 to crash or refuses to report if a cell has a formula. (no R)

I think this issue is solved in last NVDA Alpha. Right?
