The text "160-0008-02, H0110" appears regardless of what I typed or what
was previously in the cell. I'm thinking gremlins.

Are you sure that is not what you typed before clearing the cell? My
cats type odd things for me all of the time. <snark>

Google was not helpful? How could these links not be helpful? <snark,

Did you run any searches for various laws before you hit <ctrl-z>?

An odd Excel undo issue is here:

With a solution here:

My guess is that your error is related to Microsoft's insistence on
being "helpful" by providing various functions that work with undo and
clipboard data history.

Check or fiddle with your undo settings in the registry and your
clipboard data storage settings.
