Question about Microsoft Excel 2003 (065-03992) for PC
I filled a 1/4 page blank on my new spread sheet with a text box from the drawing toolbar and typed in several paragraphs. But, when I hit save, it all turns to gibberish. Click on the textbox and the proper text returns. Save again and it's gone! I tried saving the text to a word document, and copying and pasting it, but that didn't work either?? What am I doing wrong?
It may be a font issue... did you change the font of the typed-in text to a non-True Type face? For every typeface there are two fonts: a screen font to display on your monitor and a printer font for printing,
If somehow there is confusion or corruption in the Excel file contents about exactly which font is specified at a given point in the text box (e.g.if you type like I do with lots of backspaces, which are actually special codes that can cause such corruption), then the misfire between screen and print fonts can cause the text data to be corrupt. It seems to be an operating system issue (did you make a lot of changes to fonts on your system?) or something wrong with your personal installation of Office 2003 in any case, because Excel 2003 is a very stable release. To fix this I would try examining the Windows\Fonts folder using a third-party tool or comparing its contents to a known-good Windows installation (or simply copy and paste your typed paragraphs into Notepad and re-paste it into a new text box in a New Document (starting fresh with a new Excel worksheet could solve it all by itself).
