Mac Works: Values Not Shown But Seen in Formula Bar

PSS ID Number: Q104812 Article last modified on 10-22-1998

3.0 4.0



The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 3.0 and 4.0 ==


Several factors can cause a number not to appear in a Microsoft Works spreadsheet cell, even though it still shows in the formula bar when that cell is selected. Check for the following:

  1. The column width is too small.

    Usually this results in “##” showing in the cell; however, when the column is too narrow for the # sign, nothing shows. You must enlarge the column width to accommodate the number in the cell.

  2. The cell is formatted for white text.
