Calc tends to copy what it thinks is the same entry from a prior cell in a column. My problem is 
how to keep it from doing that.

Somewhere in a column I have ‘crème’. Now LO won’t let me enter ‘creme’ without the accent grave. 
How do I tell Calc to ignore the earlier value? I’ve tried a couple of times to delete the è, but 
each time it reappears.

If you just want to do this as a one-off, without changing AutoCorrect settings:
1. Type 'creme', but DO NOT leave the cell yet
2. Select all text in the cell (e.g. Ctrl+A, Edit Select All, click and drag, etc.)
3. Now leave the cell (e.g. Enter, Tab, click on another cell, etc.)

I'm not really sure whether this behaviour is accidental or an intentional feature, but it's handy when you occasionally want to avoid AutoCorrect making a change but don't want to completely disable it.
