    Euro signs (XP)

    Hi there,
    I've written this spreadsheet for my brother in Europe. They now all use Euros. I have lighlit all currency and formatted the cells so they should display Euro signs instead of dollar signs (New Zealand dollars).
    Nothing works. All I get are vertical stripes, but no Euro sign.

    I even changed the settings of my machine to Euros and again, small vertical stripes.

    Can someone please let me what I'm doing wrong and why the euros don't show.

    Thanks

    Have you set the zoom percentage of your worksheet to less than 100%? Excel uses another font for zoom percentages below 100%, this font does not contain the Euro symbol.

    Added: also see the thread starting at <post#=386,685>post 386,685</post: >. There is a registry fix to display the Euro symbol correctly regardless of the zoom setting; Jan Karel Pieterse posted a zip file with the .reg file needed to apply this registry setting in several versions of Excel.

    So simple. Thanks so much for your help.
    Rather then changing my registry I now have the zoom set on 80% and the Euro signs show perfectly.

    Thanks again
