    Entering number

    Hello people,

    I am facing few problems with excel ever since I updated windows 8 to windows 8.1. Whenever i try to enter a decimal number in excel, say for eg. 3.4, it reformats to date- Apr03. I even changed the date and time formats for eg. short date is formatted to dd/MM/yy and long date to d MMMM yyyy. The format is set to enlgish (uk).. what should i do? please help resolve this problem.
