Arabic characters appear in cells


Gary Paulin

A user Excel spreadsheet will spontaneously display a
custom cell format which includes arabic characters
instead of the input text. When we check the cell format
it is listed as B2mmm-yy. The transformation only occur
if either 1)the data is enter as mm/dd/yyyy or 2)begins
with the string A11. There don't seem to be any macros
present. The arabic characters have been translated to
say "No Al Qaeda"
