Cut out animation and cycles. Help anyone please

??? I have tried pressing alt and then sellecting the sells in the time line window, then element-cell-create cycle as well as create advanced cell cycle. I only get the first cell name to appear through out the entire sellection. It doesn’t automatically number the individual cells for me so that I can choose my last drawing in the name fields. Also, if I try and re name an individual cell in the colum, that cell then goes blank. I have also treid the exposure sheet selection process by pressing shift and then sellecting the colum range for the desired cycle with the same results as time line sellection. The only thing that does take place is that additional frames with the image are added to the cell and collum with out the corresponding movement/animation. Please some save me from this situation. Thanks Eric
