Hello:
I would like to display a 'power of' number. I am familiar with the =power(2,8) formula and the ^, but this is not what I'm looking for.

I want to actually see a 2 with a little raised 8 beside it in the same cell. Is this possible?

Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Hi

Write 28 in the cell, select just the 8 and set the font to Superscript.

I tried that in XL2007 earlier and it wouldn't keep the 8 superscripted, any idea why?

It doesn't work for me with the number 28, but it works with the string "28".

It seems that Excel won't format the characters of a number individualy.

Sorry, I should have written that the number must be entered as text to use the format in specific characters.
