I am working with Excel 2003.

How would you convert a column with numbers with 2 decimal positions such that for ex:
00000000050.00 becomes 0000000005000 by removing the decimal point and multiplying by 100. I need to retain the lead zeros because I import these records into a mainframe file that expects lead zeros.

    if all your "numbers" have two decimal positions, format the column as text and do a find replace to replace . by nothing (leave the field blank)
