    I'm trying to put an & in a footer of a spreadsheet, but it does not recognize it as a value.

    In fact I'm writing "... & T..." and it picks it up as "& (Time)" and inserts the time!

    How do I fix this, if possible?

    BTW, a search for "&" in Help would have directed you to the "Create custom headers and footers" topic which includes the tip...

    "To include a single ampersand (&) within the text of a header or footer, use two ampersands. For example, to include "Subcontractors & Services" in a header, type Subcontractors && Services."
