Users cannot enter a text starting with equal symbol, '=', because it is always evaluated as a formula.
- right click A1, select format cell, set it to "text"
- enter =abc at A1
A1 is evaluated to #NAME
A1 is still =abc in Excel 2007.
Enter a space character before '='.
- enter '= and it display just =
- set the cell's format as Text
