I cannot be of much help on the LC end of things, but if you are having trouble with MS Excel changing the format of the numbers in the cell, I can probably help with that.

It may be because Excel is treating the information in the cells in the "General" format. This means that if there is a formula or command in the cell, Excel is compute the formula or execute the command. For example, if I entered "09/29/10", it would assume that I am entering a date. When cells' format is "General", Excel also removes any zeros that appear before the rest of a number: "001" becomes "1".

To make all of these things NOT happen, try changing the cell format to "Text" or to "Number" to get the appropriate response.

You can change this option by selecting the cells, columns or rows, then right-clicking and selecting "Format Cells". You can also access the "Format Cells" dialog box from the menu: "Format", "Cells".

FYI, once Excel changes the contents of a cell because of the cell format option selected, you cannot always get the original contents of that cell back. Save your work before you experiment.

I hope that helps.
