    Hi all

    I have used TransferSpreadsheet in VBA to export data from a query to Excel.
    The cells are formatted to two decimal places with format([field],"fixed")
    but Excel treats the data as text and therefore the alignment is incorrect.
    Is there a way to make the data numeric so it lines up via the decimal point
    without having to amend the spreadsheet manually after creation?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    For reference, it works if I do Tools, Analyse with Excel - formatting is
    retained but I wanted to do it via transferspreadsheet so I can specify the
    location and filename to save it to. The filename includes a dealer code
    relevant to the current dealer at the time the report is run.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
