Many thanks for your instructions to resolve the date issue. It worked, so I'm in the process of updating my spreadsheets now.

The other issue of colouring mutations in multi-copy marker cells is personally not of huge concern to me right now since my projects are still small, but I feel for you folk with very large projects who are actively mining data. I will keep monitoring the list; perhaps a resolution (hopefully not too technical!) will eventually be found for this one.

Kind regards

<<I have no explanation for why the cell format is importing as "date" for cells
with multiple values, but there should be an easy way to fix it, without editing
each cell. Just highlight the column, right click on it, choose Format
cells..., then on the General tab, choose "text." >>

<<I also see no way around the problem of one color dominating the entire cell for
multi-copy markers, at least not short of splitting the fused cells apart
(manually inserting columns), manually editing the values, and manually
recoloring them. I presume it would be possible to write a script to do it, but
that's beyond my capability. And unless you were doing frequent and/or massive
data mining, it wouldn't be worth the effort. >>
