Whenever we prepare any report in excel, we have two constituents in any report.
The Text portion and the Numerical portion.
But just storing the text and numbers doesn’t make the super reports. Many times we need to automate the process in the reports to minimize the effort and improve the accuracy.
Many functions are provided by the Excel which work on Text and give us the useful output as well. But few problems are still left on which we need to apply some tricks with the available tools.
In this articles , we are going to learn to get rid of the problem called NUMBER STORED AS TEXT.
