I have created a general table. I need to enter data such as 00112-00239 into cells in a column. When enter or tab is pressed a calculation is run and results in -127 in the cell. Anybody know how to stop maths from being run? I have looked at the Styles and cannot find anything to help out.
I'm thinking my only option is to replace the - with something like ~. But that's my last resort.

I have not had too much time to test, but I did find the following:
When I edited the table and applied Unit formatting the Table started doing the arithmatic. As soon as I switched it off it worked again.
