    Pasting numbers to Excel from Access (XP/SP-2)

    I have users who copies columns of numbers from AccessXP and pastes them into ExcelXP. However, when they paste the numbers in Excel, they are pasted as text. I realize they can click the Information button and choose "convert to numbers", but need to know if there is an option I can set as a default to have them paste as numbers on the initial paste, without user input.
