Terry Freedman suggested using the Autocorrect feature in conjunction with
symbols to put bullets in an Excel spreadsheet.
This is a good idea, but you might want to keep in mind that you can only
use this as long as you haven't placed anything else in the clipboard since
As CTRL+V is the shortcut key for paste, it will paste the most recent item
placed in the clipboard. If you reopen the file at a later date, and you've
cut or copied text, the text will now be what's placed where you want the
bullet to be.
