See attached.

Note that rectangular box circled by brown line.

What is this ?
What value does it have ?

I believe that it holds a date...but I can't see it ...why is it held in this way??

That looks like it's trying to tell you that it can't find the image file.

Ok, MartinLiss,

Perhaps you are correct.
The sheet has been emailed to me by a client.  It'a a bit of a complex sheet.
It does not work well on my PC and so I will visit client.

It may be that when I visit his office that this will appear differently??

I attach the offending sheet (which was copied from the original workbook which had over 50 sheets - some confidential)

Those are placed images. And Excel cannot find them on your computer.

On your client computer, they will display.

This may or may not be the path to one of the images it can't find.
