Using the Text Format in Table Cells
Use the text format when you want all of a cell’s content to be treated as text, even
when it’s a number. When a text format is applied to a cell, its value is displayed exactly
as you type it.
Here are ways to define a text format for one or more selected cells:
Click the Cell Formats button in the format bar and then choose Text.
Click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Cells inspector button, and then choose Text
from the Cell Format pop-up menu.
