    In #2 above you say:

    "2. In the popping up Format Control dialog box, select the Move and size with cells option under the Properties tab, and then click the OK button. See screenshot:".

    But the red box and the red arrow points to "Link Cell". Also, on the list in your screenshot, it doesn't even list the option you say we are supposed to choose, "Move and size with cells".
