Hi,

When I type a (R) it gets converted to a circle with the R.  I want to set Excel to ignore keystrokes for special characters.  How do I accomplish this?

You can press Ctrl-Z immediately after it converts the character. For that matter, ctrl-z fixes a lot of other similar issues... for example, if Word converts the first letter to upper case and you don't want it to, just press ctrl-z after it does the conversion.
