Recently installed office xp. Cannot make the pound sign work. When hit it comes up as # sign. Also the @ sign and " sign have done a swap.

Checked keyboard states is working ok in device manager. Any advice please?

You've got the US Keyboard layout - go to Control Panel, Keyboard, and change location.

I have done as you said but it does not give me the option in xp to change to english settings. I know you can do this in 98 but cannot find it where you suggest. Any other thoughts. Appreciated

Still no luck. Is showing language as English UK but problem still there.

Is very frustrating. Would appreciate any other thoughts you may have

You havet to reboot once you have changed to English UK
