Using LO184.108.40.206 <http://220.127.116.11> Calc on iMac 11.6.1(Big Sur).
I have a data column that ends in alphabetic letters i.e.
C | D
2| 2.4 km| 2.4
3| 4.8 km| 4.8
As the ' km' can't be added in column C, I used the LEFT formula to only
extract the first 3 digits, namely =LEFT(C2,3). This works wonderfully
in column D, BUT whilst not shown on the spreadsheet, the numbers are
shown in-between double quotes if one looks at the formula, in column D,
with the Function Wizard, which again does not enable the number to be
added, averaged etc.
Both C, D columns are formatted as Number with a single decimal point
and there will be no -ve number.
What am I missing, and where to rectify it?
