negative number format
I have a report uploaded to excel from a particular program used here at
work. In that program, negative numbers have the format of $###.00-, with
the minus sign at the end instead of the beginning.
When the data comes over to Excel the minus sign is still at the end of the
number. The text currently has a General Format with No Specific Number
Format. I have been manually moving the minus signs to the beginning in each
cell, then changing the Column to Currency Number Format which is very time
consuming. Is there a formula I can use in the Cell, Column and/or Worksheet

My computer is set to European date format but Excel is default to American
date format. Can someone advise how to change this default setting.
Have you restarted Excel since setting the system date formatting? Excel
takes its cue from the OS on launch. Also, double-check the Regional setting
in the System Prefs.
If those aren't the cause you'll need to be specific about your version &
update levels of both Office & OS X plus any other details you can supply.
"Scott" <NoSpam-Scot...Formatting just some rows
Thank you so much for that, it'll save loadsa time. I adjusted the formula
as the original sheet contined 11 columns of data.
Can you help with this part now?
The original sheet had dates in Column E (in the form Jan-03). Thay have
come through on the new sheet in the single column as 5 digit figures such
as 37622. Is there any way of getting
the original form of the date back, affecting just rows 5, 16, 27 etc...of
the new sheet? Perhaps I need to format just these rows on the NEW sheet.

I would like to be able to "freeze" the formatting for the number of decimal places in cells - some will need to be integers, some will need three decimal places, etc. The problem comes when I paste in information; the number of decimal places I have formatted the cell for is overridden by the pasted-in data. Any ideas?

I have two questions about OL2003:

there any way to insert one line with one Enter?
2. I'd like to have special effect in replying text message sometimes, such
as change color of font, but it cannot be done unless changing the message
format to be rich text or HTML. If I uncheck Word as default editor, there
is an option in menu. What is it about with Word as editor?

An Excel question for you: when I try to copy data from a "date" formatted
cell over to a concatenate formula in a "general" formatted field, it
transfers the data over as the boolean value. This is causing endless
headaches because I am trying to upload the information into our financial

I think you mean the date comes over as the serial value.
If not, this may not be right. In the concatenate
function, embed the Text function. ex: A1 has 5/16/2004,
B1 has "TEST" in it. C1 formula would be =concatenate

You will have to do it manually, or copy and paste it from a spreadsheet.
See if Courier font will do it. Most other fonts do proportional spacing
i.e. the letter m is wider than an l. In Courier (maybe teletype,
typewriter and a few other fonts) use the same width of space and thus will
line up columns from row to row.
