Removing last character of cell
I am trying to remove a comma which happens to be the last character in the
cell. Does anyone know how to do this?
You can use a combination of the Left and Right functions. Insert a blank
column to the right of column you wish to change. In my example I will
assume the data is in column A. Change the formula as necessary.
In the empty cell enter the formula:
This formula is checking to see if the last character in cell A1 is infact a
comma. If it is the formula will return all of the characters in cell A1
except the last...Problem Displaying Non-English (UTF-8) Characters
Hi. I`m having a problem with Excel displaying non-English (UTF-8
format) characters in a column. Instead of displaying the characters,
it displays "?" for each character.
I have selected the appropriate non-English language under Editing
This occurs on both Excel 2003 and 2007.
Is there a way to get these characters to display correctly?

I suggest looking again at the software program you are trying to view
the animated screen character in (Word?, Excel?) and then reposting your
question to the appropriate newsgroup. See the listing at:
I hope this helps. Let us know how you get along.

will probably work.

Is there a limitation to the number of characters that can
be entered into a merged cell? I have a document which
has a merged cell consisting of 12 rows and 9 coulmns (for
text entry). I set the cell to word wrap. However the
word wrapping ceases after roughly 1500 characters, and
the text is no longer visible to the user in the cell
(even though there appears to be room). If this is a
limitation, is there a known work around?
there's a maximum of 1024 characters per cell. Though you can increase
this by manually adding line breaks with ALT+ENTER

Now when opening the same file in excel, or even wordpad, all characters

I just did some customizations in CRM 4.0
I added a menu (with the ISV) in Outlook and the webclient
where a simple user-view is shown.
So all users can easily get phonenumbers of their coworkers.
My problem is, that not everybody sees the menu - and I guess
it has to do with insufficient rights.
As I don't want to give too much rights to normal workers,
but I want them to see the menu (I want extend that in the future)
I added user-read rightts but that doesn't seem to be enough.

Publisher. Can someone help me find my special characters again?
