I need to enter a function in an excel sheet that converts all cells values, that are texts, to it Unicode values.

For example I want ü to be ü and so on.

How can I achieve this, is it possible?

I'm confused. If it's already in unicode, why would you need to convert it to unicode? Some documentation here – Raystafarian Feb 10 '12 at 12:53
@Raystafarian: It seems that RaduM wants HTML &# entities and the website automatically "unconverted" their example. – grawity Feb 10 '12 at 14:14
@grawity Ah, the questions has clarified that now – Raystafarian Feb 10 '12 at 15:36

Try this





Here CELL A2 contains "ü"

LOL Siva, that was really easy, but I need to parse the text that contains those characters for example ülorem will convert to a number and I only need to convert ü. – RaduM May 24 '12 at 5:47
