Objects) and pasting it into Excel, the cell displays the formula instead of

the formula's result.

The Excel-constructed formula is:

=HYPERLINK("http://www.microsoft.com","Microsoft")

The format of the cell is set to "General", and there are no strange or

extraneous characters either in front of, or at the end of, the formula.

Yet, after I have pasted the formula into Excel, if I then press the F2 key

and then the Enter key, the result of the formula is correctly displayed

(including the hyperlink)!

Does anyone know what is causing this behavior, and how to solve this

problem so that the pasted formula displays correctly? Any help would be

greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Bob
