I am coping data from a website that is in the format

10-11
03-04
12-11

but for some reason when i paste it into the cells in excel it will look like this

Oct-11
Mar-04
Dec-11

Is there any way that i can disable the auto format on this data as it refers to something other than a date,

Many thanks

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
