Hello, I am exporting a query from access to excel and its working but I cant figure out why im getting the green arrows in the corners of two rows of text/numbers that i exported. The exported data looks like 1-1/32" or 1-0/32" and If I mouse on the green arrow it says

Text Date with 2-Digit Year
Convert XX to 19XX
Convert XX to 20XX
Ignore Error
Ect.....


Code:
Sub ExportToExcelXLS()
'********************************************************************************
' Exports a file named [QC_Production_Export_MM-dd-yyyy.xls] to the desktop.
'********************************************************************************

    Dim outputFileName As String
    Dim XL As Object

    outputFileName = "C:\Documents and Settings\" & Environ("username") & "\Desktop\QC_Production_Export_" & Format(Date, "MM-dd-yyyy") & ".xls"

    If Len(Dir$(outputFileName)) > 0 Then
        Kill outputFileName
    End If

    DoCmd.TransferSpreadsheet acExport, acSpreadsheetTypeExcel9, "qry_ExportToExcel", outputFileName, True

    Set XL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    XL.Workbooks.Open outputFileName
    XL.Visible = False

    With XL
    
        .Range("E2:E1000").NumberFormat = "h:mm AM/PM" 'specified Time format was showing 1/0/1900
        .ErrorCheckingOptions.NumberAsText = False    'Clears the green error arrows
        .Range("A1:T1").Font.Bold = True
        .Range("A1:T1").Font.Name = "Segoe UI Light"
        .Range("A1:T1").Font.Size = 12
        .Range("A1:T1").Interior.ColorIndex = 44    'http://dmcritchie.mvps.org/excel/colors.htm
        .Range("A2:T1000").Font.Name = "Segoe UI Light"
        .Range("A2:T1000").Font.Size = 10
        .Columns("A:T").EntireColumn.AutoFit    'Auto fits colums to the largest text
        

    End With
    XL.ActiveWorkbook.Save
    XL.Application.Quit
    Set XL = Nothing
    
MsgBox "Congrats your data has been uploaded to your desktop in a .xls file", vbInformation, "Upload Complete"

End Sub
