Could be any number of reasons, some of which are addressed in your previous

TRIM,  CLEAN can get rid of some extras.

Non-breaking spaces due to HTML will not respond to Trim or Clean.

Do an Edit>Replace for  Alt + 0160

Enter the 0160 on the numpad.

Could be linefeeds like 0010  or 0013

Chip Pearson has a neat little add-in utility called CellView which shows
you what is in your cells.

Before you go there.........try this macro

Sub Remove_CR_LF()
With Selection
..Replace what:=Chr(160), replacement:="", _
     lookat:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
..Replace what:=Chr(13) & Chr(10), replacement:="", _
     lookat:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
..Replace what:=Chr(10), replacement:="", _
     lookat:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
    End With
End Sub

Excel file downloaded via web
Hi, I downloaded an excel file from an .asp web page internet site.

Office version is the same on all machines (Office 2K sr1 9.0.3821 with no service packs), installed on Win2k Pro SP4.The most strange thing is that on some desktops with WinXP Pro in the same network environment, the file seems to work perfectly.

Using Excel OS 9 to connect to a WAN data source
Hi All Sorry for the cross-post, but I'm in a real pickle.

If I try to connect the above locally (ie using the LAN) to an SQL 2000 DB on my Win2000/SQL 2000 server, Excel/Query connects in seconds after I enter the password and shows me the Query layout from which I can pick my tables.

record sheet row order, then restore to that point
There is the ability to undo a sort so I suspect the information I want is somewhere. Is there a way to take a "snap shot" of a sheet's current row order, and then restore that row order at any point in the future? During sheet processing, rows will not be added, but data in any cell may change. The only other way I can think of doing this, is to record the order of some "signature" column and then use it to re-write the processed sheet to a scratch sheet. Thank you Add a new column before you do the 1st sort with number 1 to last row. then sor tby ...
