    Can't see text typed in cell??

    I'm going over a worksheet (prepared by someone else) where I can't see the text that has been typed in the worksheet within the cells. I can see it in the editing bar, but not in the actual cell. It doesn't appear to have anything to do with the color of the text... suggestions?

    Try checking the cell format. Format > Cells > Number.

    If a custom format of ;;; is set, for instance you won't see anything. Change to general

    Alternatively check conditional formatting with

    Format > conditional formatting

    I appreciate the help, but that didn't do it... The formatting is set to general and the text within the cell is still not visible.

    Did you try conditional formatting? [ Format > conditional formatting]. the font could be set to white given a specific condition.

    If not then what text is it that you can't see. All text? or numbers and text. Does it apply to all cells?
