Forcing It: Converting Excel Numbers Into Text


Remember Dad's advice not to force it?  Well, sometimes you just gotta.  Excel numbers to text, that is.  Microsoft Excel wants to help, but sometimes it wants to help a bit too much.  Down, boy, down!

Bad news / good news time. 

The bad news is, most people go up to the top and try to monkey with the cell settings.  Don't do it... that is, unless you want the cells permanently jacked for future generations using this file.

The good news?  It's easy to do in the cell itself!  Just use an apostrophe at the front of your number!
