Correcting Phone Numbers

Your phone numbers may not look like phone numbers with letters and symbols in them, just like the cells C2 and C3 below.

To change the cell contents to numbers, head to the dropdown in the "Home" tab and select "General".

The dropdown may already show "General" by default while the cells still contain letters and symbols. Simply click on the dropdown and select "General" again.

The cell contents will automatically change to numbers. Alternatively, you can also select "Number" and then reduce the decimal points by clicking the buttons under the dropdown.
