## Problem Querying Excel Spreadsheet

Hi.<BR>I&#039;m querying a spreadsheet with ASP/SQL. The most of the entries of the first column of the sheet contain only numbers (i.e. 24671, 245798), but a couple have a letter in them (i.e. 34768x). When I query the sheet the entries that have a letter in them are returned as null! I did some experimenting and discovered that the type with the most entries wins. What I mean is if over half the entries have letters in them, then the entries with just numbers are returned as null. And vice versa. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix/get around this?<BR><BR>Thanks.<BR>Johnny.
