Hi everyone,

I have a question:

"how do I insert a bullet on the right side of Arabic text in Excel". The reason behind this question is, every time I try to insert a bullet in Excel, the bullet goes to the left side of the text, rather than on the right side. This happens even in a computer where I have Arabic windows and Arabic Excel.

Any help will be apprecited.

Bullets - their positions inside MS Excel Aug 10, 2009

Greetings... ahalan wa sahalan...

I ref to your query posted in < > .

It might be easier to forget the idea of trying to add bullets inside the cells of MS Excel.

I think the internal encoding and architecture of that particular application does not support the RTL positioning [i.e., margin-switch option] we can normally find and select inside other applications of MS Office 2000/2003/2007 (I use the latter edition)

Hope this helps. Khair, in shaa' Allah.
