Fixed decimal - Default is not ticked. If checked the number of decimal places in the "Places" box indicates where Excel will automatically put a decimal point in the numbers you enter on to a worksheet. Positive numbers move the decimal point to the left and negative numbers move the decimal point to the right. If the Places box is left blank or set at 0 (zero), you need to enter the decimal point manually. To override this option, type a decimal point as you enter the number. For more details please refer to the Fixed or Floating Decimals page. (Advanced tab, Editing Options - automatically insert a decimal place)
Cut, copy, and sort objects in cells - Keeps placement of objects with cells that you cut, copy, filter, or sort. (Advanced tab, Cut Copy Paste)
Ask to update automatic links - Displays a message each time linked items are updated automatically. (Advanced tab, General)
Provide feedback with animation - Displays worksheet movement and changes when you insert or delete cells, rows, or columns. Animation may slow video performance on some systems. (Advanced tab, General)
Enable autocomplete for cell values - Completes text entries you start to type in a column of data. If the first few letters you type match an existing entry in that column, Microsoft Excel fills in the remaining text for you. When this option is checked all the entries in the same column (in the current region) are checked for possible matches. The remainder of the text is entered for you and highlighted.
