Status bar (that shows sum of highlighted cells) has vanished

My status bar (I think) that shows the sum of highlighted cells has vanished. I'm working with this flaming new version of excel... have gone to the view tab but can't find anything that says status bar..
Have also tried to right click where I think the bar should be, no luck

Could anyone tell me how to put it back?

Thanks a million

The status bar is located at the bottom of the Excel window. It is to the left of the View buttons. If you right click, a customixe status bar menu appears and you can select what you want to show. If is does not come up, you should run Microsoft Office Diagnostics located under the Office tools menu.
