Change number from measurement to just a decimal number

How do you change a number that is a measurement in to a regular number.

How it comes out
Sheet.1!Width = 50.000 mm

What is needed.
Sheet.1!Width = 50.000

Where you need watch these numbers:

• Size & position window
• Shape's field

hidden layer

It looks like a shapesheet's cell (Width)
This is already a number - it just looks like no number but it is.

If you have a look at the field LocPinX you can see that there's already a formula in it which uses the value of Width (if you take a simple rectangle).

For other cells you can check if these are numbers (to calculate with):

1. insert  the section "user defined cells" or a new line in it
2. insert the formula: (the cell you want to calculate with) * 2
3. If the calculation is correct, it's easy
4. If not you have to separate the "numbers" (mid(...)) *1 in order to have NUMBERS.

IMHO best way use formulas like
Quote=width/1 mm

My apologies to you both. I was not informed that a response had been made.

Thank you for your replies.

I ended up using

FORMAT(Width,"00.00")
