Why not set a cell to the formula "=right(len(CELL)-1) which returns the
all the characters except for the first.
No, that won't work. You probably meant:

where "A1" is the 'text' cell. But that one will fail too, because 
the initial single quotation mark is not really part of the content 
of the cell. (Note: it might work in some particular situation, but 
it is not a generic method.)

The 'VALUE' method is a valid workaround, but it might be a "heavy" 
method, depending on the amount of data. I would prefer the "'paste 
special'+multiply by 1" method to work.
