Convert from text to number – exporting to Excel 2003 from SQL Reporting Services 2008 R2

Hi I was trying to export a report which is in float format. When I do that, all the numbers in excel have a green small tag beside it saying "The number in this cell is formatted as text or preceded by an apostrophe". I have to sum my report values and this can only be done after I convert each cell to number. Is there any possible way to handle this in report itself? Thank you.

    Easiest thing for me to do was enter [ The number in this cell is formatted as text or preceded by an apostrophe ] into a Google search. The first suggested result was from Microsoft and it gave three good answers. -- Tom
