Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

It may be the Num Lock state of the main keyboard that is inhibiting the 10-key keypad from working.

Try changing the Num Lock state.

Or, on a Mac, holding down SHIFT, and pressing


(above the 7) toggles the Num Lock state.

And should enable the keypad with the Excel program.
