Did You Know?
In Excel, entries are numbers, dates, times, letters,
or special characters. You can only use numbers,
dates, and times in numeric calculations. Excel
treats letters and special characters as blanks or
zeroes in calculations. To have a currency symbol
appear with a value, as in $400, and use the cell
value in a calculation, you must apply a currency,
accounting, or custom format.
Did You Know?
Excel fonts are based on Unicode, a set of 40,000
characters enabling the display of characters from
approximately 80 languages, including right-to-left
alphabets such as Hebrew. To use a language other
than English, attach an appropriate keyboard and
use the Control Panel to set the Regional and
Language options.
