When I import from a text file - DATA FROM TEXT/CVS, for some reason the numbers are not as numbers, so when I enter "auto sum" at the bottom, it's not adding the numbers I need it to. How do I fix the numbers without re-typing all of them?
Select your column, then go to Data, Text to Columns. Hit Next three times & select 'General', then Finish. Right click the still selected column & format the column to the Number format you want.
@Rusty Dane that's great - I never knew that!!! thank you!!
@Rusty Dane While waiting for a reply I just found that "opening" the text file in excel instead of importing it leaves the number(s) intact and works like the prior versions of excel used to work.
Good to hear!
