    diagonals in a cell (Excel 2000/Sr1)

    I have a workbook cell with a diagonal in the cell and numbers on either side. I did this by seperating the two numbers with spaces but I was wondering if there is a Excel method that automatically places each number into a seperate side of the diagonal?

    No, not as far as I know. As an alternative, you can format a number as a fraction; 0.625 will be displayed as 5/8, but that is not the same as having a diagonal in the cell. Or you could place the numbers in two other cells, and use a formula like = A1&" "&B1 in the cell with the diagonal.

    What exactly are you attempting to convey with your data? Have you tried using Custom Number Formats?
    Custom Number Formats can be accessed using Format|Cells|Number(first tab)|Custom(at the bottom). Try putting @ in the Type line for Text display or # ???/??? in the Type line for fractions up to three significant digits. HTH
