Importing table to geodatabase, data type fail

I'm trying to impoort an excel table into a personal geodatabase. One of the fields has a mix of numeric and non-numeric values. Even when I set the type of this field to 'text', and its length to way more than the longest value, it still only imports the numeric values and tosses all the non-numeric ones. I can fake it out by adding a character to the numeric values, but this is not a good solution. Any  ideas? thanks!
