  1. Open Microsoft Excel.
  2. Click on the File tab in the upper left-hand corner.
  3. Click Options in the drop-down menu.
  4. Click on the Advanced tab in the left-hand column.
  5. Scroll down to the Editing options section and uncheck the Enable AutoComplete for cell values checkbox.
  6. Click OK to save your changes and close the window.
