"Too Many Different Cell Formats" #2
Can anyone tell me what this means and how I can fix whatever is causin
it? I'm simply trying to change some cells from no decimals t
having decimals. I did test other worksheets in the same workboo
and I get the same message there, too. This workbook I'm working i
has probably 20 different worksheets . . . some are graphs, some ar
copies of work in other folders. Thanks in advance for any help

Someone recently sent me a email that shows up red in my message window ( I
don't use the preview pane ).
I don't have any message rules that would change the colour of that message
or anything like that and the priority of the message is normal.
Anybody have any ideas as to how this is done ? OL 2002.

when trying enter text in a cell (say the size of a

Cells can only print about 1024 characters, even tho they can contain about
