Euro Symbol in Excel 2000 won't display properly below 14pt fonts

I'm using Excel 2000 on win98SE
I can't get the Euro symbol € to display in font sizes below 14pt
If I put a € in a cell at 14pt (or larger)  it displays OK
If I reduce the font in that cell to 12pt or lower, the symbol is displayed as a vertical line
I mainly use Arial, but it's the same for other fonts.
I have dowmloaded the latest version of the Arial font

Any ideas ?

jlovie,

After you insert the Euro symbol into your spreadsheet, does it still display in print preview?  If it still displays in print preview, regardless of the font size, then I'd say that there is nothing wrong with your system.  On my system I get the vertical line for the Euro symbol when I get below 10 pt.  However, it displays in print preview and prints properly.  I suspect you have a display limitation, which is not uncommon for various items.

Hope this helps.

Thanks - it displays fine in print preview, so although it doesn't look right, everything still functions OK.
I have zoom set to 65% as I need to see a fair bit of the spreadsheet in one screen,
If I increase zoom to 100% € shows OK

Can't believe I didn't think of that myself !
