How to change cell format to Numeric?

Hello everybody. Possibly a repeating topic, seems to be an easy one, but i cant find the solution.

I need to change cell format in Excel (ex. from General to Numeric) using Dynamo. Any suggestions of which node can help with that? I was trying to find something in Bumblebee, but i failed. Please help. :roll_eyes:

from System.Runtime.InteropServices import Marshal
path , c_range = IN		

excel = Excel.ApplicationClass()
wb = excel.Workbooks.Open(path)

excel.Visible = True

wb = excel.Workbooks.Open(path)

ws = wb.ActiveSheet.Range(c_range).Cells.NumberFormat = "0,00"



OUT= "Success!"

Well, This is absolutely right answer to my question!) Sorry, but i didnt mention one little thing.
I must do it when i am writing excel file. The situation is… I have data as string which writes to excel. But, when excel file is created and data is written, it has General format of cell. So look what happens.

I have this data.
after i have this excel
So you can see it converts to Date. And if i change it to Numeric, i dont get the original data. So… the question is to change it before file created…
P.S. I am using BB Data node from Bumblebee

See if this works for you

After creating file get file path and use Passthrough as “wait for” use Node from BumbleeBee and then connect it to my script.
