Hello all,
Im a total Excel newbie and I really need to know if it is possible to convert a lot of data held as numbers into text for a mail merge.

Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Ok, I have around 160 cells containing numeric figures.

I need to convert these numbers into text so that I can use them for a mail merge to print onto cheques.

Is there a quick way of doing this?
