View Full Version : formatting cells in excel



11-07-1999, 09:21 PM
We have just changed from Mac to pc at work. Mac version of excel allowed us to format negative cells and formulas into brakets. We can't do this with the pc version. We are using office 97. If we use a file or copy that has been transferred from the Mac then we can, but not on any new sheets. Usually we would go into format - cell - custom and we could customise it just like that. I have tried to add it into the custom box that comes up, but it won't accept it. Obviously I am not doing it right, so how do I do it? I would appreciate any tips. Thank you
