import problems

I am having problems getting some data into SQL Server using DTS. I have a result field which is a text field in excel which looks like this:
I am importing into a varchar field, but all of my numbers come in as nulls. Any ideas? I tried saving as a text file but that did not seem to help. Thanks for your help. Archer

One workaround is to save the Excel sheet as a text file and then you use the DTS Wizard to import the file into SQL Server.
