Text in excel textbox turns to gibberish

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).

I loaded MS Office 2003 on a new laptop running Windows 7, only to find that Word opens as a blank page with no toolbars, rulers etc - only the writing area. Excell works ok


The Word 2003 Window When Word is first started, a new blank page titled Document1 is opened automatically. This is a fresh page where you can begin typing a new document.
  • At the top of the window is a row of menus, including File, Edit and View.
  • Below that row of menus is a row of buttons for various tools (collectively called the "toolbars") to use in creating and editing your document.
Layouts in Word 2003
Normal - Normal is the default Word 2003 view. It shows just the text that you are working on, without margins or header and footer information. It doesn't differentiate between different pages of text.
Web Layout - The Web Layout displays the document as if it were a web page
Print Layout - The Print Layout shows the entire page you are working on, including margins, header and footer information. It shows the layout of the text on the page the way it would be displayed if printed.

Trying to write a loop using excel text boxes such as: Dim x as integer for x= 0 to 100 textbox(x).backcolor=vbWhite x=x+1 next x Not working any thoughts thanks


You don't say how your program is not working, but one of the problems with your code is where you have x=x+1. Loops using For Next don't need a statement to add 1 to the value of x. The variable x will automatically be increased by 1 each time the program reaches the Next x statement. Your program should be
Dim x as integer: For x=0 to 100: textbox(x).backcolor=vbWhite: Next x

"Delimited" gibberish in Excel


You could try to change the whole workbook font to a known good one or do it a sheet at a time by doing a "select all" then setting the font.

It sounds as if though you are trying to import a web page including the HTML code which may well cause the problem you see.

I prefer to do that type of thing with a
"Get External Data"
"new web query"
which will put things into a sheet in such a way as you can use them in other calculations

Whenever you open the sheet it will go and get the latest information for you automatically so you can then select what you want and copy that to another sheet. to use to keep track of things.

make sure your fonts are loaded correctly and turned on.Try it with a open type font and see if this fixes the problem. Open type fonts are the new font type to use. try www.dafont.com and enjoy. as for the creating a proper print file without text reflow and a open type doesnot fix the problem. Your rip for the proofer might need the font loaded locally for proofing. or when you send make sure the option to send fonts for each page selected.
