Exporting Expense Transactions to Excel Amounts are not numbers and I have to go back and reenter.

We are a very small company.  With not very many expense reports each month.  Yet when I run an analysis for the month so I can bill our projects, the amount is formatted as "general" and I cannot override the formatting.  I have tried clearing the format of the cell.  I have tried copying and "past-special only the value".  I have resorted to just hand-copying each cell into a new cell.  This is very tedious and open to mistakes as I cannot add up the original column.  When I try and add the column I get a zero.  I am working on a Mac and use Excel for Mac.


Can anyone help me?

@jvitaro when you say, "when I run an analysis for the month", are you referring to using the Analytics option? Can you take a screenshot of what the amount field looks like when run the report, please?

Thank you,

Yes.  When I go to Home. Click on Reports Analytics. Then Click on Expense Entry Analysis Details.  Then, I click Export to Excel.  It generates an Excel worksheet that I can use to organize expenses by client/project.   Yet when I go into the Excel file, the dollar totals are not numbers but general.  I cannot change the format.  I am working on a MacBook using Excel for Mac.  The only way I can change the Dollar amounts is to type the number in a separate cell and then format it as either number, currency, or accounting.  This is tedious and is open to transcribing errors.  Not to mention taking up valuable time.
