Question for Vog.!!!!

I am experiencing a problem with Excel, when i enter a date say on line 12 in the first box, it accepts this, i then enter a name in second box on line 12 again ok, but when i enter another value in box 3 and then exit from the page, this 3rd value turns from the figure 10000.00 to what i can only describe as a sqiggle !! not sure if i am explaining this very well, but can you suggest why this is happening and a possible remedy please ?

Thank you

Is the squiggle like this ########

If so then you need to make the column wider.

If not then you are welcome to send me a message by clicking on my yellow envelope - I'll reply and you can send me the file as an attachment. Don't do this if it contains state secrets or details of your personal fortune!

Brilliant , yes it was as you described, widened column slightly and problem solved.

Yet again many many thanks
