Hi, all.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
Having trouble with results to convert number to text - Excel 2003.<o:p></o:p>
I´m trying to convert, e.g., $1,236.25 to text, by using =TEXT(A1;"0,0.00") and
=MID(A1,1,LEN(A1)).<o:p></o:p>
Both ignore and return the same number.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
Some idea why they do'nt work? Maybe configuration?<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
Thanks in advance.<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
ps – at another PC, with Excel XP, both work fine<o:p></o:p>
