I need to turn off the auto format date feature

  • I need to turn off the auto format date feature 1

    1. Very difficult (0) 0%
    2. Understandable (0) 0%
    3. Difficult, but Managable (0) 0%
    4. Well (1) 100%

    I need to be able to enter into a cell the value 1-4. Every time I do it it assumes
    that I want to enter a date and changes the format. When I try to change to back to general format, it gives me a decimal because the value of the cell was changed. Can anyone help.
