Avoid Microsoft Excel deletes leading 0 in CSV files

Image
When  you open CSV document using Microsoft Excel,  if you have a column with numeric data and leading 0, Excel will automatically delete the 0 and convert it the field type to number. To avoid Excel doing this automatically,  there are several ways. For me,  the easiest way is by importing the CSV file instead of opening it straight in Excel.

To do that, follow the steps below
Open a blank Microsoft Excel document. Navigate to data tab on your toolbar. Click import data from text.
Find your csv file and click import. Leave the default choices - file type as delimited, start import at row 1, and file origin: MS-DOS and press Next.
On the next screen, tick comma under delimiter options. You can untick or leave tab as it is. Press next. On the last screen, change the column with leading zero numeric data format as text. To do this, simply click on the column and change the column data format as Text.
Click finish.It will ask where do you want to put the data, press Ok.

Delete a file that was uploaded via text editor in Moodle 2

Image
Start from Moodle 2.0, it changed how it is handling the file inside the system. For security reason, the file is not saved as it is anymore (not like 1.9). It will be encrypted and stored into chunks of files.

When you uploaded a file (mostly media resources like audio, video or image) via text editor, if you decided not to use the file anymore, there is no way for the administrator to delete the file using FTP and there was no way for the teacher / content manager to delete the unused file via the text editor itself.

If you uploaded a big file (like video) this will become a problem when you try to backup your course because the file will be included in the backup file which will bloat the size of the course backup file. This in my experience will slow down the backup process and also you will likely get the maximum execution time error if your server has low capacity.

I searched Moodle.org to find the way to solve this. One of the post that I found is this: https://moodle.org/mod/…
