My organization recently upgraded to Office XP. Now one of
my very important excel files have had two columns of
numbers apparently changing to text numbers.  When I
follow the recommendation to change those numbers back to
a number value some hidden formulas give back a different
value in the hidden cells.  Should this reported error be
ignored?  I would really like to know what is going on to
have confidence in my spreadsheet again.
