Change the cell format into general using a macro in an excel report

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 ?

How is the macro ?

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.

Sub test()
' 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
Exit For
End If
End Sub
