Hello

How can I change (using a formula) the format of acell to number so that it can be calculated?

I tried VALUE but it does not work.

I do not know how to attach a file to this message to show what I am trying to do!

Thanks

Click the italics "fx" icon to the left of the formula bar to open the Functions Arguments dialog. Help is displayed for each argument.
Try multiplying the cell by the number 1. ie. if your cell value is in A1, then in B1 type: =A1 * 1

It is a number but it does not have a number format, I do not know what the format is and I do not know how I can attach the file to this message so that you can see!

I used the CODE formula and the result that it returns is 63, does this help find out what the format is and how it can be converted to number?
