For the date use
replace A1 with the first cell of your range
you probably have to reformat the first to

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I
try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...Format for credit card numbers
I've tried a custom format for entering credit card numbers (four groups

I have tried to use ####-####-####-#### and 0000-0000-0000-0000 but
each of these causes the last digit to change to zero. So if I enter
5415779800902512 I get 5415-7798-0090-2510.
Anybody already solved this problem?

The following will strip the text from the active cell and place the number
in the adjcent cell one column to the left. If there are subsequent numbers
in the original string you will get erroneous results. Put the cursor on the

I am creating a tech manual where each chapter is its own file. I have

Chapter 1: Heading 1 style
1.1: Heading 2 style
1.1.1: Heading 3 style, etc.
But when I start my next chapter, when I update the chapter number to start
at 2, I get this:

1.1: Heading 2 style

You have an octet 0x02 or perhaps a character reference  in the
