Whenever I try to print any text that contains =) phpexcel treats it as a formula and throws an error. I don't need to process any formulas in the spreadsheet. All I need to do is print plain text. Is there a way to force phpexcel into only printing plain text without processing any formulae?

Method getValue() pulls the raw value of the cell without pre-processing it in any way.
Method getCalculatedValue() processes any formula first before returning the value.
Method getFormattedValue() processes any formula first, then processes any formatting before returning the value.
