The cell is too narrow to display the number.

Either make the cell wider or in some cases alter the number format (reduce decimal places).

Can you explain what you mean? Are you talking about the individual characters ("/" etc), or does Excel show the string "/ < >" somewhere, or what?

Thanks for that. However, you're about a year late.
