    Thanks for raising this Roger. This has been the bane of my life for 20+ years.

    Dear Microsoft : can you please READ what your marketing department says re "Microsoft (R)"
    Then can you please fix that:
    1. That the window is re-sizable
    2. That the columns are re-sizable
    3. The settings are remembered so that next time when I open it the window is sized ok
    3.

    I agree, but I rather see that this is a setting option. I prefer it to be set to shift+enter as shift+enter is used in so many web based and other text fields. Hence I find my self continuously typing shift+enter and then the cursor moves to the cell above. Perhaps the option can record what one wants to press for enter in a cell versus enter / shift+enter (down/up). There is already the option that enter moves the cell to the right

    Hi, there are a number of functional issues with Headers/Footers. I have taken the liberty to roll them all up so that we can get a combined much bigger vote and thus action. To transfer your votes here, can you please follow the link below and vote on that combined idea? Many thanks

    Malcolm's suggestion is spot on for me. Lotus 1-2-3 release 2.01 of 1982 or so used to do it :)

    Here is a suggestion. I agree it is a search if you are new or infrequently use it.

    It is actually in the same Ribbon as for MS-Word, being "Page layout". It's hard to find because it is hidden under "Margins" > "Custom margins" (that opens the "Page setup" dialogue window).

    If you use Headers / Footers frequently or infrequently, it may pay-off to add it to the "QAT" (Quick Access Toolbar) by right-clicking on the "Custom margins" function. I have added a screenshot to show you how.

    The trick I use, is to format one sheet to be what I want. Then I ctrl+select the other sheets that need to have the same header footer. I then go to the Page layout Ribbon, select Margins, then Page setup at the bottom. Once in that pop-up window, click on each of the tabs (Page, Margins, Header/Footer, Sheet) to bring them in focus. Once done click on "OK" and you'd find that all the additionally selected sheets have the right page formatting.

    This is printer dependent, I would avoid doing that as each printer has a different hardware boundary. If you need to share or distribute files, then the safest is to have a 12 mm (1/2 inch) margin, so that it will print on anyone's printer.

    Isn't the solution to just set the date format right for your machine? Check what your default is by looking which format has the star * in front of it (see second file ...15_16_07...). Change your regional settings using :
    control panel > Region settings

    If the regional setting is correct, then make the format of the cell, cells or column/row explicit, i.e. set it to the right expected format. Use the
    (ctrl+1) Format Cell dialogue, and click on Custom to set it to what you want e.g.:
    dd-mm-yyyy
    d-mmm-yy
    dd-mmmm-yyyy

    etc etc
