Hi hopefully an easy one...

I have never seen this before, my colleague is dragging data from a PDF to Excel. If the data was 51,201,145.89 rather than drap it in to 1 cell it breaks it in to 3 cells:

51, 201, 145.89

On my machine it just puts the whole number into 1 cell, is there a setup issue with his Excel that I can modify so he can drag said data in to 1 cell?

Thanks,
T

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

In Data|Text To Columns, check Delimited at Step 1 and make sure that the comma is unchecked at Step 2.
