The simsun font can be obtained from:
http://www.fontmarketplace.com/font/simsun.aspx
Once installed just select it like any other font in the toolbar or as Psychotec has said make it the default font.

if i make it the default font, that means everytime i open up excel, it will show this font as default. what i want is only when i switch my language to chines to type chinese characters, then it will change the font to simsun.

As I have said already - "Once installed just select it like any other font in the toolbar..."

we have installed the font, can see it in the toolbar... it still will show the default font 'arial' when we switch from english to chinese. we will have to manually go to the toolbar to select the simsun font, which is what we don't want to.
