Welcome to the board.
If they are free with some softwares that you use, then you can copy those files from another system and then through File>"Install New Font" Option in the FONTS directory you should be able to install it in your computer too.
OTherwise purchase them and install them in the same manner.

I did a google search for BRADLEY HAND ITC and found many hits that offered downloads of the font.

Some did charge but others didn't.:)

I downloaded the font from one site, unzipped the file, dragged it to the Fonts folder and now it's available in all my apps.

Sorry for being stupid but where do i find the FONTS FOLDER i´ve been using this programme for 3 years everything was set up for me and i´ve never had to change anything to all.

If it would be possible to send me the address of the free font web site that would be very helpfull well at least if i can sort this font thing out anyway :eek:

It's not in Excel, it's in Windows.

Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel, Fonts
Under the File menu here, there is Install New Font
Navigate to where your fonts are located, select the fonts you want and click OK.
