ConvertTextToNumber replaces numbers and dates, formatted as text, with real numbers.
Choices can be made about marking of cells, including cells with non- default decimal separators, conversion of dates, and more.

As a result of the conversion, the text cells will become real numbers, and then will be counted in formulas Calc.
Calc does not use numbers formatted as text. Other spreadsheet programs may well do that in certain circumstances.
This extension adds the tool bar ‘CT2N’ to Calc only. The screen shot shows it all.

Available languages: Spanish, Swedish, Russian, French, English, Italian and Dutch. Translations for other languages would be gladly accepted.

Pls note: We get requests about all kind of clean-up actions, that can be necessary when copying data from a website. These are not the original problem that this extension addresses. However, since it would make a good extra functionality, we kindly thank for this input and plan the ideas for a future version.
