You should be able to click on the cell (or highlight the range), right click on the area and select Format Cells from the menu list that pops up. Does that work?

Right-click the cells and go to 'Format Cells'. Then, select the correct format. If you're wanting to leave the slash (/) in the number, you'll probably have to make it a text format.
