How to make a cents symbol in Excel 2007
I read a comment about using Alt + 0162 to make a cents symbol (c with a
slash through it). But it was for Excel 2003. I tried it in Excel 2007 and just got beeps for an error. How do you do it in 2007?  Scott in Salt Lake

Are you using a font that uses this code for something else? Try using a common font like Arial and see if it works.

How to make a cents symbol in Excel 2007
I can't type in the number. When I press down the Alt key (and hold it down)
and then try to type the number 0162, it just beeps. I can't enter in the number.

Do you have a number pad on your keyboard? The numbers along the top don't work. With a lap top you might have to lock in the numbers.

Are you using the keypad, it doesn't work from the number row.
