Default green marker in cell ?


What is the meaning of a green marker displayed in the upper left hand
corner of a cell - similar to a red comment marker in the right hand
corner of a cell?

Default green marker in cell ?

Quick look in help came up with:

A green triangle in the upper-left corner of a cell indicates an error in
the formula in the cell. If you select the cell, Trace Error appears. Click
the arrow next to the button for a list of options

Not necessarily an error in a formula, but maybe just an inconsistency that
Excel flags.

i.e. in a column of numerics, you type in '1234 to enter it as text.

Excel will flag this because it is different from the other cells.

If you don't like the green triangles error-checking can be disabled at
Tools>Options>Error-checking.

Also see the list of items Excel flags.
