Excel trouble

3 posts in this topic

Is there a way of changing the format of a cell? Currently I am using _ExcelWriteCell in the excel.udf. The issue I am having is I need to send a number with a leading 0 (say 002233454). Even though the first line of my code creates a text header I cannot find a way of designating the column (or cell) as a text format. Currently it would just display 2233454.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Set the cell's contents as '002233454, the leading ' designates the contents as text and won't format it as a number, which strips leading 0's.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Excellent! Thanks, strangly enough when in excel the number is now coming up as '002222423 (or whatever) but when you copy it and paste it the ' is removed. Which is good enough for me (the file is meant as a copy and paste middle man).

Thanks a ton.
