      What's That Little Green Triangle in an Exported to Excel Database?

      Post

      Hello, everyone.

      I am using FileMaker Pro Advanced 11.0.

      I have a minor question that has to do with exporting a database to Excel.  Perhaps this question should be asked in an Excel forum instead of FileMaker, but I'll ask it here anyway, in case anyone knows the answer.  It's not a big deal if I don't get an answer.

      I have a very basic, flat-file movie collection database that I designed a few years ago.

      The database has an "Auto Enter Upon Creation" Serial Number field.

      Recently, I purchased Office Home & Student 2010, and decided to export the database into Excel.  I did that easily and successfully with FileMaker.

      When I open the .xlsx file in Excel 2010, the numbers in the Serial Number column have a little green triangle next to them. 

      Take a look:

      I just want to know what that little green triangle is.  That's all I really want!  Thank you! Jd
