    What's meant to be in the cell and how was it entered?
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    is there a formula behind that? If so, what is it and what is it referring to?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    is that exactly whats in that cell?
    can you upload a sample?
    To attach a file to your post,
    click advanced (next to quick post),
    scroll down until you see "manage file",
    click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
    click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
    You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

    Format the cell as something other than Text.

    as shg and humdingaling said change the cell format to something other than Text. if you have text that is between 256 and 1024 characters long in a cell formatted as Text it will display as ### in versions prior to 2010

    if at first you don't succeed try doing it the way your wife told you to
