Hi folks

I just want to write "0800" in a cell but it keeps changing to "800"

How do I do this? :oops:
 

Excel Facts

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

put an apostrophe in front, like so: '0800 (this will be a text entry though).

Hi,
Try Formating the cell as follows

Format / Cells / Custom
Type will probably have defaulted to General, overtype General with 0000

Hope this helps

Steve
