Hi Arda,

I have numbers in that column, with trailing spaces which look like ;
"1.2         "
"12.9       "
"3.4         "

When I right click to the column, choose "Format Cells" and
"Number", it doesn't convert.

Yes. The type of your data is text. If you change the format, the
data type is still text.

Try the VALUE() function in order to convert text into numbers.

Excel can use those values in formulas, even if I don't convert and
with trailing spaces..

Excel does an implicit conversion of data type, which can be an
advantage or a disandvantage, depending on the point of view.
