  • Evaluatable is an option for Cell which specifies whether a cell should be used as input to be evaluated by the Mathematica kernel.
  • With Evaluatable->True, typing Shift-Return in the front end when the cell is selected will cause the contents of the cell to be sent to the Mathematica kernel for evaluation.
  • Evaluatable is more often set for styles of cells than for individual cells.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.10.9.
