Hello,

Can anyone help me, please? I have a 10 digit number that I need to divide into two and to place in two separate columns. I've used formulas (=LEFT(A1,5) and =RIGHT(A1,5)) to get the two five digit numbers.
However, these columns are now 'Formula' and I need them to be 'Numbers' so that my map software can read them (they are x,y coordinate values). Using the Formatting Cells function does not work. I'm not very profficient with Excel and really need some advice,

Any help would be much appreciated,
Thanks
