One of my friends encounters a weird XLS problem. Whenever a "+" is
entered in data entry, the result is converted to "294". When editing the
cell later on, I can "overwrite" the "294" with "+", so I do have a - time

When I open the XLS he created on another PC, the problem is not

Any idea what may be causing this ?
