Convert value in excel to correct format

Hi Everyone,

I have a column in a file named Serial Number which is having values like -
1092534, J101KPN4, J1007PEA, 1048E75 this data is in an excel table format.

When I am copying this data to another sheet every value of this Serial Number column is written as it is but values like specific to 1048E75 are automatically converted and written in this form → 1.05E+78 but i want it in the original form only.

Can anyone please help me in this scenario.


i guess you trying to write data by integer type instead of that change it as string
it wont change format

Its in tabular format like excel tables so it is writing it that format only I am not changing format anywhere.


are you using Copy sheet Activity ?

Could you please use one text to column macro

Hi @Dhruvi_Arumugam

Yes, in the starting

Can you guide on that?

Hi @tkiran,

the attached xaml only contains a read and write range, will this fix the code?

Thanks (2.8 KB)

1.please give your path in to excel application scope
2.change the column in the scripts(now i am considering A column)

Hi @Yoichi @Palaniyappan @ppr @supermanPunch can you people help on this?

Hi @Dhruvi_Arumugam

Have you tried with the Copy paste range in the Modern Excel Activities?



If you use datatable, FormatCells activity might helps you as the following.
