I don't think Notepad will show the tabs.

Can you open it in MSWord and turn on 
Tools|options|View tab|Check Tab Characters.

Or you can hit the pilcrow (the funny looking backward P character on the
standard toolbar) to see all the formatting characters.

(to see what icon I mean)

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the help...My friend needs to solve this for work.  Is there 
anyway I can email you the file that she is trying to convert so you can see 
what I'm talking about.
Thanks

I don't like opening files/attachments.

Have your friend try this and see if it helps first.

excel 'file format is not valid'
I have an excel file which was retrieved from a computer running Win 98. This computer crashed and when the file was retrieved it will not open in any version of excel.

Interestingly if I enter =([Q1]-[Q2]) then I get the correct answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated here. I could be wrong, but it seems like access i...
