    Format Cell for Euros (97 SR-2)

    I am in the US and am working on a spreadsheet to be used in Europe. I am trying to format some cells as currency using the Euro symbol, but can't find it as one of the selections. Is there a way of updating my version of Excel to include Euros?

    I have successfully captured the symbol itself for use in text fields, but when I highlight the cell I wish to format, select "format cells", select the "number" tab, select "currency" in the category window, click the drop-down arrow next to the "symbol" field, I don't see "euro" as one of the options.

    Thanks all. I am requesting an upgrade to Office 2000. In the meantime, I will check out the suggestion to look in the control panel for supported currencies.

    TIA, Douglas
