    So I go to lunch and come back to my spreadsheet and things have changed.

    This isn't the first time this has happened. Magically there are a bunch of cells whose formating, values, and formulas have all changed. I don't believe this is the work of someone tampering with the file as there are only a few people with access to the directory and no one would even know where to look for it nor that I am working on it.

    Anyone know of any excel viruses, mal-ware, etc?

    Doesn't work when the changes were made when the file was closed

    - But I did notice one common thing that was changed. All dollar figures had all the zeros removed ($1209 would turn into $129).
    - Also, all cells with percents and blue font turned into red font.
    - And all percent values changed to 4% (from 40%, 30%, and 20%).
