Yes, I'm sorry, there is one more step in MS Excel.

Select A1, A2 and A3 and use the small box next to them (Convert to number tool)

Then the sum of the values give the real value.

It's easier in Ms Excel (That's why they wrote that small conversion toolbox, appearing next to the cell)

But this is can be a hard step for regular users. And again, they say me "ms excel does it, what is this now" :)

This is not right... not in all cases. My test with Excel 2000:
* Column A -> Cell format = Text
* A1 = "1,25    "
* A2 = "3,46    "
* A3 = "0,3     "
* B1    =SUM(A1:A3)

the result in cell B1 is 0 (zero) not the expected sum. Maybe Office XP and later version works better...
