Apostrophe in every cell

Every one of my cells starts with an apostrophe. You can't actually see it, in the cell, but when you look double click into the cell, it shows up. I downloaded this from a website.

How do I get rid of it? Is it s problem or will the cells still work properly?

Thanks!

That is perfectly normal.
When an apostrophe is there, it means the cell contains TEXT (not a number, not a date, etc).

You do not need to get rid of it.  Think of it as "It is not there".

The apostrophe indicates that the data is to be treated as text - that shouldn't be a problem unless you want to use SUM or some other mathematical functions on the data
