When I export to Excel, any large numeric fields show up as 33.34343+12:

 .Range("A1").Value = "Item ID"
 .Range("A1").ColumnWidth = 25
 .......

 For Each dr In DataSet1.Tables(0).Rows
      .Range("A" & i.ToString).Value = Convert.ToString(dr("itemid"))
      .......

The problem is that an "itemid" like 893912123857
shows up on the Excel sheet like this:  8.93912E+11 , after I export it

is there anyway to stop it from doing this?  thanks
