I am facing a problem with Excel's Concatenate function. I am trying to make a text string with numbers from a cell. =CONCATENATE( "price paid= ", D23). D23 is a numreric cell, formatted for one decimal place. However, the text produced by above function is showing me two decimal places of the number in D23.
If you look at the attached file in Column E line 47 you will see that it displays 373.97. However if you look in the formula bar it shows 373.9694. I am trying to make it so that the formula bar shows the same number as in the cell. Any idea on how to do this? I have tried everything I know how to do, which is not much.
I have a vba macro that takes data from one workbook and pastes it into another workbook. In doing this I have declared a few variables of type single (I only need two decimal precision). However, when I copy the values from the cells on the source workbook and paste them into the target workbook, the numbers end up having 12 decimal places. Ultimately, this extra precision causes my totals to be off by .01 or more after a while. I have tried rounding the number as I pull it off the source workbook into the variable, but that didn't matter. How do I solve this problem? Code for pulling data from source workbook:...
I need to convert a column of numbers currently formatted with 2 decimal places e.g. 112.12 to 4 decimal places (without the decimal point). I need the end result to be 1121200. I've tried a few different suggestions given on the forum previously but can't seem to retain the 4 decimal places that I require.
I'm trying to solve a strange problem in a piece of code.
I have a variable that is define as Double called STD. When i try to insert that variable in a formula the decimal sign (for me a comma "," because I'm Portuguese) gets converted to ";" (which is for me the separation sign for the expressions in excel formulas. ex: AND(A1>0;B1>0)=TRUE). The code is:
I have a very frustrating problem with my business plan i am writing in Excel. every so often it crashes and when I open it again all the £ signs have turned to $ signs and i have to go through and painstakingly change them all. This also happens even if I just close the file carefully and open it up again. I have tried looking in preferences to see if there is a default setting but can't seem to work it out. can anyone help me with this tiresome issue?
I have a spreadsheet with cells defined as Euro & Dollars. I want to add an automatic conversion so for example, if a cell is defined as $ the formula will return the sum X 4 and if it is Euro than sum X 5.
I tried to use "if" combined with "search" (so if the cell contains "$" multiply by 4) but since the cell is defined as currency the $ sign does not appear and cannot be searched…
I was going to use the following to test that a number has no more than two decimal places,
If Int(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100) ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100 Then However it is rather mysteringly failing when activecell = 16.99 or 17.99; on testing it appears that vba is evaluating Int(ActiveCell.Offset(0, 8) * 100) to equal 1698 or 1798
I am creating a Daily Cash Count worksheet for a business to do their daily closeout paperwork. What I am trying to do is automatically apply decimal formatting to a cell. Examples, if they count 60 cents in nickles and enter 60 in the cell, it automatically converts it to .60. And if they count 7.50 cents in quarters and enter 750 in cell it automatically would convert it to 7.50.
I'm trying to work out a formula in excel which requires me to use Pi to over 30 decimal places. Excel will only let me have 30 decimal places of Pi whether I copy and paste it as a number or use its Pi function and even then seems to round up. Is there any way I can get more than 30 decimal places for this calculation? If not in excel then can anyone suggest another programme that may be capable of this?

Is it possible to apply some kind of formatting to a range, that will force all numbers entered into that range to have the same number of decimal places as the cell with the maximum number of decimal places?
Everytime I enter a number, excel automatically converts it to a decimal number.
I type 1 in a cell (or formula box) Excel returns the value as 0.1
I think it may have to do with the FIX box highlighted to the bottom of the screen. (To the right side of the NUM lock). (I can't paste a screen dump to show the FIX box position). how to remove the FIX box, and/or change excel so that I can enter in numbers normally.
I am doing some calculations via Excel, and I have found that I get different results using a calculator. I know that by formatting the number, I can show as many or as little decimal places as I like in any cell, but can anyone tell me how many decimal places Excel actually uses when it's carrying out calculations? I have a feeling that the Excel results I'm getting might be more accurate than my calculator ones.
I am using Excel 2003. I am attempting to use the Accounting format with numbers that should not have any decimal places (although what is entered might have a decimal place). The numbers line up fine on the right, however, the dollar signs on the left are not lining up. It looks something like:
I have a simple spreadsheet that allows the user to enter a dimension in metric or inches. I want to display the other units in the adjacent cell. In cell A1, the units are "Metric" or "Inch" in a pull down list. In cell A2, the value is entered.
In cell A3 i want to show the value in the other units. So if A1 is Metric, then take A2 and divide by 25.4. And if A1 is Inch, then take A2 and multiply by 25.4. Also, if A1 is Inch, then display 2 decimal places in A3, and if A1 is Metric, then display 3 decimal places in A3. Is this possible?
Workbook with 21 sheets, first sheet is the summary sheet (named SUMMARY) taking all it's content from the other sheets, named from 1 to 20, which are all laid out the same, but contain different data.
My problem is that I want to get rid of decimal places that are being brought into the SUMMARY sheet
In sheets named 1 to 20, I am using the following formula in H23 to arrive at a figure =IFERROR(100/(B5/B23),0) in H23
B5 and B23 are always whole numbers on all sheets 1-20, result can be whole or contain decimal places which I round up in the cell to show no decimal places
On sheet 1, B5 is 200 and B23 is 5, giving 2.50 as the answer, which is right, I have H23 set as a number cell with no decimal places so it rounds up to 3 which is what appears in the H23 cell.
All of the above is correct and appearing as I want it on the sheet, the problem arises when I import into the SUMMARY sheet as follows:
On the SUMMARY sheet in cell B59 I want the following to appear 5 - 3 but am getting 5 - 2.5 using the following formula
='1'!B23&" - "&'1'!H23
The first part is fine as B23 will always be a whole number
How can I stop it from bringing in the 2.5 and get it to bring in the rounded up 3 into cell B59
I have cell B59 set as a number cell with no decimal places but it still appears as 2.5
Also when I correct it as it appears a lot on the summary sheet, how do I get the following to happen
='1'!$B$23&" - "&'1'!$H$23
if I fill the above across columns how to I get the two '1' s in the formula to become '2' then '3' as I fill across.
