Hi, I have Postal Code column and used select tool with datatype to V_WString it converted the data to string but i get the warning "Number stored as text" when i open in excel. The default type for all column once the render tools outputs the excel file become "Number" automatically even though my data is V_WString. Any solution to remove that?
I have attached the warning message and data type showing "Number" i get in excel here.
I am not writing into a CSV. I am writing it to Excel workbook .XLSX format. I am appending images and formatting using Table and Layout. So, i am using the 'Render' tool to put the excel file. This is going to be to be automated so i cannot every time open and change the excel data types.
This Postal Code is an example. I have ID's, Phone number etc which are following through as String but in the output excel file they are converted to "Number" and represented as 123,456,789 (with comma) which i don't want.
The Table tool or Render tools as far as i am understanding is outputting all columns into a 'Number' format irrespective what data type flows through it. Is there any way to change that ?
