cell format as Text

Post by Marcin_R » Fri Jan 25, 2013 3:37 pm

Hi ,

I am using a barcode scanner (Motorola mc9191, windows CE) to read bar codes and send data to applications as keystrokes (using DataWedge app).

Problem i have is that a barcodes in format code128 come as a large numbers which can only be stored as txt within spreadsheet (for example 86173450000000079079).

Does PlanMaker support cell formating as "text"?

There is no format "Text" availble in Format=>Cell in PlanMaker 2010. You have to write an ' (apostrophe) in front of the text of every cell you want to format as text. In PlanMaker 2012 (which is not available for Windows CE, but for Windows XP/Vista/7/8, Linux and Android) you can use the format "Text" via Format=>Cell.
