Excel/Changing Text to Number format for Huge data



We have numbers are in Text format for more than 10,000 rows and from column "C" to column "AZ". Currently we are converting it to number by using text to columns to convert it to number format which would take huge time to convert for each columns.

Could you please suggest a macro that will convert all the text to numbers swiftly. Thanks for your assistance on this issue. We have attached our report in the image format.

QUESTION: Thank you!! and I have created the following macro in the meanwhile. Please advise this can be shortened too:

Do Until Selection.Text = ""
  Selection.Offset(0, 1).Select
   If Selection.Text = "" Then
   Exit Sub
  Selection.TextToColumns , DataType:=xlDelimited, TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
    End If

Hi use this macro

Sub TexNum()
   Range("ZZ1") = 1
   Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteAll, Operation:=xlMultiply, _
       SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
   Range("ZZ1") = Clear
End Sub
