i have an extended keyboard on a macbook pro and the number pad won't work. letters all work. num pad works fine everywhere else - word, safari, etc. just not in excel. a wireless targus keypad suddenly doesn't work any more either. targus says it never should have worked but it did for a few years. now nothing. there is no num lock on the keyboard and I tried all the 'f' keys. f14 is the scroll lock but no num lock.

any thoughts anyone?

Thank you
just found the answer. shift-clear (key above the 7) turns num lock on and off. who in the world would think of that???

btw, f14 is the scroll lock.

posting this in case others have the same problem.

Thank you, al 60
