Stop Auto Format To Scientific NotationDec 29, 2008
I run a macro that imports a table from web page:
I import only the table with no formatting.
Excel tries to be helpful, and formats some of the cells in scientific notation.
I have tried to format the column to the "Text" format prior to the import with
Columns(2).NumberFormat = "@"
This does not work. If you import the table you can see that rows 1405, 1406, 1407, 1408 all have the same scientific notation value. Their true values should be 0E0, 0E4, 0E8, 0E9 respectively.
There are quite a few other instances in the column when a text value has "E" for the second character that Excel will format on its own.
