Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Tech Support Pits:
Go to TOP
I'm working on a spreadheet and I know that I have about
8000 rows to play with. Right now I have only a couple of
hundred rows and I need to insert a row near the top. It
won't let me. What's blocking me?
Another reader asked about a similar problem today.
Most likely you, or some silly prankster, put some data
into the lowest right corner of the spreadsheet.
Some spreadsheets will warn you about that, but not all
of them. Just go to the lowest possible row in column A,
hit the END key, then the right arrow. The cursor will zip
to the right until it hits a cell with data. Have a look what
is there, and if it is just a prank or something that the cat
moved when she swatted the mouse, delete it or move it
back where it belongs.
After that the spreadsheet will behave normally again.
