Reverse the Contents of a Cell in Excel - UDF

Add to Favorites
Reverse cell contents with this free Excel UDF (user defined function). This will mirror all cell contents regardless of the type of content contained in the cell. This includes numbers, text, or a mixture of both. The only argument for this function is the reference to the cell which you want to mirror and, as a result, this is a very easy to use UDF in Excel.
