Formula does not calculate in Excel

Something is weird with my Excel sheet. When I enter a formula, for example
Excel does not calculate the result. Instead the formula just stays as it
is. I am sure there is some strange option that has been chosen by accident,
but I can't come up with where.

Any help out there!


you probably have the format of the cell as "text"
