I ran into this one other time and lost the link/pages of how I fixed it. I remember it being a SUPER easy fix though.

I run a LT and seperate monitor at work, Excel 2003. The text in a "Wrapped" cell has disappeared. It still shows in the formula bar, but not in the cell itself.

I remember the fix had to do with the dual monitors...no driver reinstalls or "Start-->Run" functions. Sorry crazy simple that you wouldn't think would work took care of it.

I have searched the net and can only find other people with the same issue but no resolution.

Any help?? Its right on the tip of my tongue but I can't dig the solution up.

Thanks!

Problem solved...I was able to find the elusive discussion thread that gave the answer(s).

Oddly enough...it was a different solution this time that worked.

1st time...disable the second monitor and re-enable. Problem solved, text reappeared.

2nd solution (this time) Start--> Run --> Excel /o

Go figure.
