How can I avoid Excel reformatting the scientific notation numbers I enter?

I had this with list of long numbers, about 14000 entered into one column. I highlighted the column, Data -> Text to Columns -> Fixed length -> Don’t create any break lines. Clear any that show up -> Select column data format text -> Finish. Worked like a charm.
