Sometimes when I do a copy and paste, the format of the cell is not formated as “general” so instead to do one by one manually, this simple code will do the job automatically.
When I use the macro ?
To format all cells into “general”.

Copy the code below and paste it into your macro. You will see my comments in green if exist so follow the help to adapt to your need.
' change B:B by your column letter
Selection.NumberFormat = "general"
' change B2:B20 by your range
Dim i As Range
For Each i In Selection
Dim j As String
j = i.Value
If i.Value <> Empty Then
i.Value = i.Value
