How to convert symbols to numbers in Excel

You can convert symbols to numbers in Excel by using the CHAR function. This function takes a character and returns the corresponding numeric code. For example, the code for the letter "A" is 65. To use this function, enter =CHAR(65) into a cell. You can also use the CODE function, which does the reverse of CHAR. It takes a number and returns the corresponding character. For example, the code for the letter "A" is 65. To use this function, enter =CODE(65) into a cell.

You can also use the UNICODE function, which is similar to CHAR but returns a four-digit code point for Unicode characters. For example, the code for the letter "A" is 0041. To use this function, enter =UNICODE("A") into a cell.

If you want to convert multiple symbols to numbers, you can use the CONVERT function. This function takes two arguments: the value to be converted and the desired output format. For example, to convert "1/2" to a number, you would enter =CONVERT("1/2",9.2). The 9.2 specifies that you want the output to be in decimal format.
