Hi :)
I like my answer in conjunction with Jay's but i have a feeling that Cor's
Extension (as given by Tinkerer in another thread and quoted&copied below)
is better.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Errr, you could format the cell as a text cell, perhaps just by typing in
The ' mark lets Calc know the cell is text.

Unfortunately i think that means the 10/30 can't be used in formulas! :( 
Btw Excel does the same thing jic you were wondering.

If a1 has '10/30 entered the work around is to use value(a1) in any 
formula that requires a1 to be a number.

The extension by  Cor Nouws, CT2N, "Convert Text 2 Numbers" is ideal and
Paste, then click on the icon in the toolbar and it is done.
Wherever there is a number prefixed by ' the ' will be removed.
Nothing else will be changed and your sheet looks exactly the same.
Here is the link
