I have values in cells of Columns G and H (I got the values by COPY & PASTE SPECIAL, VALUE from website) which CANNOT be done calculations with, for example I cannot SUM() all values in Column G.

Even changing the cells' format to NUMBER or GENERAL or TEXT cannot work.

Pls HELP by giving me STEP BY STEP GUIDE on what should be done to values in Columns G & H to enable them to perform calculations.

I can email to you the Excel file (if you give me your email address) or you can download it by going into my email as follows:

email Name: sguse44@yahoo.com.sg
password: publicuse (The file name is Mathsproblem.xls, therere is only one file so no problem of confusion)

Thank you for your kindness.

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Select the range of numbers and from the Toolbar select Replace, in the "Find What:" box type a single space. than click "Replace All" a lot of web numbers are padded with spaces as the last character, preventing them from being valid formula ranges.
