Avoid Formatting Cells as Text

Best Practice

When using the Jet Excel add-in, setting the format of a cell to Text can cause problems.

When you format a cell as Text, the formula itself becomes the value of the cell and Excel does not evaluate it.


Since the Jet Excel add-in assumes that Excel will evaluate any formula entered into a cell, this can be a problem. It is best not to set the format of a cell as Text.
