Hi,

I would everything in my workbook to be in Times New Roman font, so I just select all cells and set the font to that. However, since the default font for Excel is Calibri, every times I cut a cell, the font of what's left behind is reverted back to Calibri.

I have tried to solve this by changing the default font for Excel in Excel Ribbon to Times New Roman, then restarting Excel. However it looks like the problem still exists.
I think what this option only does for you is make the font of a NEW workbook Times New Roman. WIth an existing workbook that was created before this change...tough luck??

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Square and cube roots
The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).

You need to edit the Normal style in existing workbooks.
One line of Macro will do this in the active workbook:
ActiveWorkbook.Styles("Normal").Font.Name = "Times New Roman"
A macro could open each file in a folder, apply the change and save and close the file again.
