Excel footer question

  steved 20:37 13 Oct 2004

Simple question (hopefully) - how do you put a copyright symbol (you know the one - a 'c' in a circle) into the footer of an Excel document? I know where to find the symbol (in the wingdings font) but not how to place it!

Pop across to Word

Ctrl+Alt+C will give a copyright symbol.

Copy and paste into Excel.

It's the only way I've found so far - but watch someone come up with a better on!

This is a bit of a pain but it works.

Go to an empty cell and select Insert/Symbol. With the font set to Normal Text choose the © symbol and insert it. With that cell selected go into the formula box and select the © and press CTRL+C.

File/Page Setup, Custom Footer button and press CTRL+V.

Tested in Excel 2003.

...with a better on! = ...with a better one!

In most Microsoft products (c) gets auto corrected to the symbol, and (R) goes to ...
and if you want to superscript CTRL and + in Word toggles so you can offset your (r)and TMs.

ctr/alt/v - of course! I was trying right-click + paste...

Correct but not in Excel Footers, for some reason. That was the first thing I tried.
