    remove dot at end of some numbers in a list

    Hi everyone,

    i have a list, for example:

    23
    43
    654.
    34
    123
    656.
    76
    34.
    43

    See at the end of 34, 654 & 656 there is a "."? Its all good for the rest
    How do I get rid of them? I tried using =clean(), with no luck...

    Thank you!

    Hi rhua,

    Are the cells of the format 'text' .. coz if the format is 'general' etc the "." wouldn't appear in the first place

    hi Johnrichie,

    they are in text format... and i tried converting them into number format just then and its working now

    dunno why they didn't work earlier when i tried similar operations (paste special > multiply by 1)

    Thank you for your time!
