I imported an Excel into the project. I found some single figure in a separate cell in Excel are missing, such as 1,2,3,4. Has anybody met the same case and known will it affect the result? Thanks in advance!

no need to import Sep 5, 2007

in Excel the format of figures (e.g. if the decimal delimiter is . or , etc.) determined by Windows, you cannot change this in Excel.

therfore you do not need to touch figures.

figures also can represent formulas, which you must not touch during translation

DVX just protects you from making mistakes here.
