for the kids. I am making an "ABC Order" sheet where I have pictures of
animals in one column and pictures of animal names (as opposed to just
typing the names in the cells) in another column. The kids will slide the
names into alphabetical order, then slide the picture of the animal next to
My question is this; is there a way to "protect" or "lock" the pictures
so that the kids can move them but not accidentally resize them? I have

That is the formula bar you see expanding.
Don't select any cells with great amounts of text or just don't display the

That's one thing I like about Excel 2007. The option to expand or not.

I believe that I've tried it every which way, and it just doesn't happen.
For instance, I'll use the "Number" format, then specify 0 decimal points,
type in "20", and it'll just say "0" (meaning, less than one half). Can I
just enter "20", and have it appear as "20"?

Now my vlookup will not return data. The vlookup formula appears in the

After formatting the cell as General, re-enter it (F2/Enter) - if you're

I spent a long time formatting the edges of the cells in my document,
now the document looks like a table that I would like to use a template.
a) Is there a way to copy only this formatting [not the values in the
cells] and paste it to other cells? [i.e., create new templates]
b) Is there a way to paste values INTO a blank template [that has the
correct formatting of the edges of all of the cells, but no values in the
cells], keep the formatting of the edges of the cells?
