    How can I type the character x bar (for the statistical mean) into an excel
    spreadsheet? I can do it in a word document, but not in an excel sheet.

    You can either insert an equation object using the Equation Editor, or you
    can use a font that has xbar in its character set. Two such fonts are

    xbar is Alt-0214 in the Math Ext font from
    http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/wptoword.html

    xbar is Alt-0120 in the MS Reference 1 font
