Excel - Number in Cell Will Not Behave
Posted on 2017-06-15
Hi, I am creating a very simple Excel file for a user to populate with part numbers that I have attached to a Crystal report. We are on;ly using column A with no formulas or calculations. This is just a flat file for them to use to get data back just on the part numbers that they want to see. I have populated several cells for testing and found I have one rogue. When entering the data all of my entries justify to the left except this one number, it justifies to the right. This is no big deal except it tells me something must be different about this part number. If I go to the Crystal report that is using this file to look up the part numbers and I browse this data field I can see all the part numbers that I have entered except this one. This is an example of the list:
It is the last one in this list that is the trouble maker, 1725911. I have tried formatting the cells to number, text and general with the same frustrating results. Any help with this would be appreciated.
