Good day experts. i have got data in excel. in one of the columns, i have ID numbers which are in the format 12345678D19. The check letter differs from person to person. my problem is if I have a check letter E, excel will recognise my ID number in scientific notation. For instance if I have an ID number such as 08726849E00, excel will recognise it as 8.73E+06. i have tried to format the entire row to text but this failed to yield any result. thank you in advance for your help.
