How do I get a cell to show the result instead of the formula?

I have gone to Tools -> Options and formulas are unchecked. However, I
cannot get one particular cell to display results. It will only display
formulas. For example, if I simply reference another cell in the sheet, the
"=A1" reference shows up rather than the value of cell A1.

Hi

The cell is formatted as text. Format it as General (or number, or date) and
re-enter the formula (activate the cell, press F2, and then Enter)

Try this:
Select the cell
Format>Cells>Number tab
Category: General (it's probably set to Text right now)
Click the [OK] button.

Does that help?
