Hi Excel states you can only convert one column at a time using text to columns

I need to convert multiple columns from text to numeric, is there a piece of code i can run to achieve this?

Many thanks

Hi,

You do not need to code you could copy a cell with the value 1

and then PasteSpecial/ Values - Multiply to convert Text in Numbers
