    Additional Fonts (2002)

    I've just installed XL 2002 on a machine and noticed that some of the fonts are missing. I have more font types available with XL97.

    Any ideas why?

    Did you install Excel 2002 on the same machine/operating system? If so, can you be specific about which fonts are not available?

    Installing fonts is done in Windows, not in a specific application. With a very few exceptions, fonts are available to all applications.

    The operating system is W2K SP3. From what I can tell my current font select is quite small. One font in mind is "Percival".

    If you open Start | Settings | Control Panel | Fonts, do you see Percival?
    Can you use Percival in other applications, for instance WordPad or Word?

    I do not find Percival on my W2K SP3 system either. AFAIK, that is not one of the fonts that comes with Windows. Many applications will install fonts on your system when you install the application (Adobe applications are good at that). The fonts you are missing were most likely installed with applications.

    If you do a google search for +percival +font you will find many sites where you can download this font. Unfortunately they are mostly sites that SELL fonts!
