# How to show long numbers as text [closed]

I have a column with large numbers, I want Calc to show them entirely. I have tried formmating the cells as text but it does not work.

thank you

I'm using @ as formatting. I don't want scientific notation. So annoying

Having set the "@" format code

in advanceof entering the sequence of digits (you didn't show which one) Calc won't change anything. You wouldn't see an exponent part if not entered explicitly.If you want to have a numeric format showing numbers without using the scientific notation you have to take care for a sufficient width of the column. Annoying? Having entered numerical values using more digits than can be handled by the internal format you will see a rounded value in any case.
