Format Text in Excel

Hello friends,
I have to set the format of some cells in an Excel File to Number.
In particular I have to change the format from general to Number (the cell in blue indicates the Type of format )

I tried to type into the box the Text “Numero” (in italian) but it doesn’t find the correct selector.
It writes “Numero” in the Excel Sheet,
Is anyone so kind to give me suggestions?
Thank you so much for your kind help,


You might have more joy working with Send Keys - e.g. Right Click → F (for format) → select Number. Also the window becomes more accessible when you pop it out of Excel.
