Euro Symbol in Excel


J

James Mandeville

Windows 2000 Pro operating system and Excel 2002.
Can anyone tell me how to get the Euro symbol on my
keyboard to work? It works on all other Office text
processors but not on Excel.
I have the same problem on Windows XP Pro on my laptop -
the Euro key just prints out a bar; the same with the
ASCII or hex codes.

I'm using Excel97 and Windows98, but in case it helps, I can get the Euro
symbol in two ways:
1 Hold down ALT whilst typing 0128 on the keypad at the right of the
keyboard and then releasing ALT.
2 Hold down ALT GR (the key immediately to the right of the spacebar) whilst
typing 4 on the number keys along the top above the letter keys (the key
with the Euro symbol on it).

We had that trouble too, using std Arial font.
Its a font or screen or graphics problem.
It just looks like a bar but it's still really a Euro sign that is too
squashed.
If you use a bigger font like 12 say, the Euro symbol will re-appear.
If you use Central European Arial font aka Arial CE the Euro symbol resists
getting squashed when you use the smaller fonts and shows up OK.

Well at least that's what happens with us.

Instead of using the Alt keys + xxxx
you may be able to use Ctrl+Alt +E
????
See, it works.

Or AltGr+E
?????
There you go.
That works too.
No problem.
Well that's what we do in France.

Hmmmmmm.
That didn't look too cool, did it?
The Euro sign shows up OK in my post before it's sent but come back as a ?
in Outlook express.
Not so hot.
I've switched from MIME to UUencode.
I wonder if that will change anything...


????????????
This looks ok to me.
