Vb.Net - Set Excel Column to Special

Good Day Experts!

I have a bit trouble with exporting my DataGrid to Excel.  When I have issue with values like 2.01E+111 in and Excel spreadsheet I just format the column to "Special" and it displays the correct/full value.  

How do I set this column to "Special" programatically so when I export from VB.Net DataGrid I see the full value?

Thanks for the help,

I would format it as "text", ..and see if that works.

cells.NumberFormat = "@"
