How would one make a numeric keypad appear on the screeen  and be usable in Excel. That is input numbers so that they would appear in an Excel cell.  Is there a software package or program that would do this ?

Create a VBA program that does this.  (Not a VBA programmer, so I can't help beyond this).

lilevine....

Why you need that... it sounds extrange to ear someone asking for that.
I don´t know of nothing to recommend, but if you tell your needs we may find a workaround.

I would use calc.exe
and from that I would use cntrl-c and cntrl-v.
Above and beyond that.  An .ocx or VBA app would
work nicely (vb 5.0 has a calculator sample app
on the CD.. get someone with vb to compile it for you)
