Number with Text converts to Scientific Format

I have a number that contains one letter i.e. 10113E6. When I go to input it into Excel it converts to a 'Scientific' format i.e. '1.01E+10' and if I try to select the 'General' format it changes to '10113000000'.

How can I keep it in the same format '10113E6' in Excel.

Thank you @ Fluff13. That works if I input it manually one by one but what if the program exports it as a .csv spreadsheet that contains over 100 numbers that just automatically converts the numbers to the 'Scientific' format.

In that case you will need to import the csv using the import text wizard & set the relevant columns to import as text.
