I had been writing some VB code in a form which was part of a spreadsheet. In the code I was writing control characters, ie. chr(0-31) to the cells which I use for parsing. The characters appeared as a small square which was fine and all worked well. I had to reload some software on my computer and ever since I cant write these codes to the cells anymore. It leaves the cells blank. I've tried all the help files and can't find a setting to enable writing control characters to the cells. Can anyone help?

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