Find and replace a letter to 0 in front of exisiting numbers
Posted on 2011-09-08
I have over 10000 rows and in one column have values (ex. S012224). I want to replace the S to a zero but when I use the find and replace method the leading zeros disappear. All the fields are formatted as text yet excel thinks its a number after I execute the replacement. I also want to avoid using '0 in the replace with field. How do I change this so that the leading zeros do not disappear?
Thanks for your help!
