For me dealing with an extension, installing it, making sure it doesn't conflict with something 
else was more effort than creating a column, using Value() and then pasting special. 

What's a problem is that in Excel even though it also uses the leading ' to format text as numbers, 
if you change the format of a cell the conversions happen without any problems. I want that same 
behavior in Calc because to me it makes sense that the cell format should be the controlling factor 
for what type of data is in a given cell.

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
