Have you tried clicking to another cell and then back to the one your editing,

I'm not quite clear about what you are asking. Are you saying that your formula bar is not visible - this is where the text appears when you are typing if you have selected for this to be visible.

I don't know which version of Excel you are using but if the formula bar is not visible you should be able to go into View - Data - and there should be an option to check/uncheck formula bar.

You could also insert a text box into the cell in which you are typing.

If you have the Office CD you could try running a repair- put disk in drive and select repait.
