Code for updating the database
I am having to click on the formula bar, then I have to click enter for the formula cell to do its thing. I had a case of this just now on Excel 2010: a particular spreadsheet that would not auto-recalculate.
I changed the setting as indicated above; but the auto-recalculate still did not work, and upon rechecking the "Calculation" option, found it had reset itself back to "Manual" all by itself.
Unrelated to that bug, but a bug still, you should not create swing components outside the event dispatch thread.
Empty Border; public class Swing Worker Progress would be the state where you want the progress bar to stop.
