Need help in formatting excel cells
Posted on 2014-11-13
I have an Access file linked to an excel file for data comparison,
it compares rows from two sheets containing Social Securities, and displays in a report all names from sheetA that does not have matching records in SheetB and vice versa.
The problem I am encountering is that the data in excel file is not consistent, meaning the social is some time typed in with the dashes and some time it comes as numbers, and user changes it to display format as Social, however in Access it will only recognize the text rows while the numbers are shown as #Num!, what is the easiest solution?
