  • I've had that problem in Word but not in Excel. I just keep tinkering with it, achieving limited success. I get to the point where I don't care anymore whether Word "understands" that the text is supposed to be going RTL. Sometimes I cheat and use a tool to reverse the letters [textmechanic.com]. (However, of course, this is a terrible solution if it's a document that's going to be edited with any frequency.)
