How can you convert a column of formatted numbers to a column of text.  I
can go into format/cells/text..but when I do I do not get the little
triangle in the cells upper left hand corner indicating a number formatted
as text.

For whatever app that uses this info will not work right unless
that little triangle is there in Excel.

Is there a way to change a whole column and get the triangle marker there in
one operations

Excel 2003

Thanks, Tim
