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.
