Why not set a cell to the formula =right(len(CELL)-1) which returns the all the characters except for the first.

That's =RIGHT(Xn;LEN(Xn)-1) - but that won't strip the single quote mark because it's *not there*! The simpler formula =RIGHT(Xn;LEN(Xn)) would work, but that's just a complicated way of saying =VALUE(Xn).

Why is everyone straying away from the fact that there is a simple extension developed by Cor (one of our brilliant devs) which accomplishes all of this? Just curious if there's a benefit to doing these formula techniques instead of just pushing a button on a nice gui

All the best,
