I have a string array with shows "0E302" as the value.  However when I do a Sheets
("MergeRecords").Cells(n, 3) = CStr(myArray(2)) 

Open in new window

it ends up on the other sheet as 0.00E+00.

Here is the code to get the information into the array
myArray = Split(ResidentID, "-")

Open in new window


they all seem to be strings at this point.  Anyone have any ideas.

thanks

Try using:
Sheets("MergeRecords").Cells(n, 3).Value = "'" & myArray(2)

Hi,

Or format the cell as Text

Sheets("MergeRecords").Cells(n, 3).NumberFormat = "@"
Sheets("MergeRecords").Cells(n, 3) = myArray(2)

Open in new window
