I have vlookup that isn't working properly and i believe it is because the cell I am trying to lookup isn't properly formated as a number.

I am trying to look up a cell in E1, it is a zip code. It is a formula that says =Right(D2,5) which pulls the last 5 characters from the cell next to it. How can I tell excel to recognize this zip code as a number?
