If I merge say Cells A6 to G6....and format the area for text alignment top
left and autowrap selected.......
I find that although the text I chose to enter (can be several sentences),
appears fine when in the merged cell area.....when I click ou of the
area.....I get a string of "#############".....clicking back into the cell
area reveils the text  again......  I have tried adjusting cell column
widths but this doesn't help.....I have searched online help.....no
joy.....any suggestions would be appreciated.
