That extension should do the trick - we're trying to incorporate it into the core code but so far you need the extension.


All the best,

I have a spreadsheet that is the output of a SQLite Database on Android. It 
contains numbers that have been formatted as text. When I copy the columns into 
my LibreOffice Spreadsheet I want to make sure that they are interpreted as 
numbers.

However they come in as text and the manuals and help at Libre Office are less 
than useful.

https://help.libreoffice.org/Calc/Converting_Text_to_Numbers implies that this 
conversion happens automatically but it sure doesn't

I found reference to a value function, but no information on how to apply it to 
this data.

  I tried just changing the format of the cells to be number but that didn't do 
anything at all.

I've also attempted various styles of paste special but still it doesn't work.

There has got to be a way to quickly say this text is all really numbers and 
get it working!

Please help
