Try looking at the second to last comment at http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/grid/export-to-excel-prventing-long-numbers-from-scientific-notation.aspx

Alternatively, you can put an apostrophe before the numbers, which would convert it to text and prevent it from being displayed as scientific notation.
