I am copying some formula's from another spreadsheet that has the numbers in "accounting" format. I like using "currency" instead of accounting and changed the cells to display currency. However, when I go back and double-click on the cell to see the formula, the cell changes back to accounting. how do I change this permanently to currency? is it something in the formatting?

Try this. Go to 'Data' on the ribbon. If 'Edit Links is not grayed out, then click on that and then remove links. Then reset your number format.

Thank you for your help. "Edit links" is actually already greyed out. Any other suggestions? Could it be a formatting issue?

Try formatting the cells you will paste to first. Then copy the formula cells and use pastespecial/formulas, so you are only pasting the formulas not the format from the source cells.
