Excel 97 turns dash into slash
Posted by Gene Kunkel on March 20, 2001 1:58 PM
When using Excel 97, you are entering a formula into a cell and if you use a dash it will turn into a slash when you start to enter the next number. For example, if you enter A5-B5-9 the dash before the 9 turns into a slash as soon as you enter the 9. You can go back and edit the formula and it is OK as long as you don't type a number after the dash. We've reloaded Office as well as removed the users profile from WinNT 4.0 but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
