I'm running Excel 2000 v 9.0.2720.

When I highlight a cell, then click on the comma on the tool bar, I get an error message that says, "Style 'comma' not found".  The same thing happens for the $ and the %.

What happened?  How can I fix it?

take a look in Format - Style - do you have any styles in there?

if not, your styles may have been deleted. you can recreate them by adding them in. For example, to recreate the comma style
1. type comma in the name field
2. click on add
3. check the number box only (for me, they were all checked)
4. if you need to, modify the style

I looked at Format style, and only "normal" is showing.

I have been able to use the %, $, and comma styles before, but now they don't seem to be there.

thanks,

don't know. is your template shared? did you create a new template? are you pointing to something other than the default template?

check - tools - options - alternate startup - anything listed there?
search for your xlstart folder - anything in there?
