When changing the height of a row in Microsoft Excel, any cell in the row displays a zero instead of its proper contents.
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
- You format the cell to use text that is angled in a range between -41 and +41 degrees orientation. -and-
- You recently decreased the height of the row that contains the cell in question. -and-
- The number format of the cell is the General format.
If you apply a number format to the cell in question, the problem no longer occurs. To do this, use the following steps:
- Select the cell with the angled text. On the Format menu, click Cells.
- In the Format Cells dialog box, click the Number tab. Select the category and number format that you want to display. Click OK.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the products listed at the beginning of this article.
