I just noticed that all of my columns now show up as numbers instead of letters, which makes it difficult for entering formulas - how do I get the columns back to letters

I am attempting create formatting for an object based upon the value
displayed. If the value is six numbers entered without spaces (Ex. 123456),
then the formatting should be "##-##-##" (Ex. 12-34-56). Otherwise, the
object must allow regular text. I have tried several different methods but
with no luck. Below is my most recent attempt. I tried inserting it into the
"lost focus", "on change", and "after update actions". Many thanks in advance
for helping clear up a headache.

We are trying to import an outline, usually two levels, with an occasional

text but no numbers. We used Publisher 2000 and got the numbers until we
updated to WPX3 and Word 2003. Once we made those changes no numbers. I

I'm trying to update a cell "A1" based on a cell value in "B1":

if cell value in B1 is between 10-20, A1 should be 300

one big group. Any hints?
How about using the subtotal feature from the data menu?
Just select "count" of "co. name" or whatever.
>...Formatting cells for phone numbers
Hey, im looking to format a number of cells into a phone number format
I have a rather large excel spreadsheet of around 900 phone numbers
they are currently in different formats such as:
+44 0800 7777777
+800 (900) 666666
These are obviously just example numbers and not real ones, as you ca
see they are all over the place and in the wrong format that i nee
them in. Changing them all manually would take me forever so ive trie
to create a custom formatting rule to have them represented like this:
+44 (800) 888888
So basically they must all begin with +44 then the n...Can I sort text data by reference to text data in another column?
I have imported text data (e-mail addresses) into a worksheet that also has a
column of text data (also e-mail addresses), many of which, but not all, are
the same as the imported text data. I wish to sort the imported text data
into the rows of the matching original text data. How do I do that?
The basic process would be to get all email addresses into a single column.
Then select ALL columns to be sorted and use Data --> Sort and choose the
column with the email addresses as the column to base the sort on.
Duplicate email addresses will end up on adjacent rows.

2) My home computer has recently been upgraded to the latest version of

versions. This no longer works! I have to hit Enter key after pressing
the "C". Is it a bug? or am I missing something?

enter the above formula in C1, and copy and paste the formula to your
other cells in Column C.

...Change positive number to negative number
I've searched this board and have tried a few things, no luck yet.
I have about 100 rows, in columns A and B there is descriptive text. In
column C it is either blank or it contains the text "CR". In column D there
is a value (number with 2 decimal places). Column E is blank and available
to use for the formula.
If there is "CR" in column C, then the value in Column D must be displayed
as a negative number. If "CR" doesn't exist then the number should be left
positive. How can I do this? I've been working with the ABS and I...Outlines of Pie Charts
