That looked to be a good solution. Thanks for your suggestion.
Do you have a solution to another minor problem that I experience with Excel? This one involves copying data from one sheet to another in the same workbook. When a set of cells are copied from one to another or when a set of cells are deleted, Excel automatically (sometimes) changes the "word wrap" formatting from off to on. I suppose I could just leave that information out of the sheet altogether, but not really wanting to do that, I have found no way of stopping Excel (2003) from doing it. It is easily corrected, just a nuisance to have to. It doesn't happen every time, seems to be random, but probably isn't, something might be triggering the format change. One of the "experts" on this set of websites had no answer either.
