Michael asks “Hi Mr. Excel,

I just want to know if there's a way (other than manually doing it through "F2") to delete decimal point in "amount" thus converting it to text. Example 2535.25 to 253525.”

Sure, select the range you want to “convert”. Go to Edit | Replace, put “.” (Without the quotes) in the “Find what” box, and leave the second one empty. Make sure that you select “Formulas” in the Look In combo.
