Number Format: Change Decimal To Comma

Is there any way to change the decimal point from the usual period symbol (.) to a comma (,). The reason being, i have a structural design spreadsheet and the new terminology is just so, changed from 00.00 to 00,00 I have tried cell formatting but it just uses a comma (,) for numbers in their thousand and it wont do what i need.

Custom Format To Replace Decimal With Comma
I am having problems applying custom format to numbers that need to be formatted.
custom format use is 0",00". When I apply the custom format above to whole numbers, I achieve the results I want:




However, when I apply to numbers with decimal places


how I can change the custom format so that the period is replaced with a comma but the decimal values are preserved?

Change The Format So That There Are No Digits After The Decimal
If I enter 2.5 into a cell, and then change the format so that there are no digits after the decimal, the number changes to a 3.

2.4 correctly rounds to 2, but shouldn't 2.5 round to 2???

I thought that even numbers were supposed to round down, and odd numbers round up when there is a 5 right after the decimal.

Format Number Of Decimal Places To Show
Is there a way to format a cell based upon a condition? If the cell value is <1, I want to show two decimal places. If the cell is >1, I want to show zero decimal places. I tried to use the conditional formatting, but there is no option for this.

Change Decimal Number To Whole Number
I know the basics of excell, but haven't ever written any formulas or macros (if that's what I need?) that would perform the following opperations. Bare with me, it's a three step process.

1. I need any zero's to the right of the last number (1-9)
to be removed. (I think this can be done with the click of a button, somewhere?)

a. 173.17300 = 173.173
b. 231.11000 = 231.11
c. 53.00000 = 53.

2. I also need for the decimal to be moved to the right of the last number after the zeroes have been removed from the previous step. (This seems to be the most deficult step, but most important for me.)

a. 173.173 = 173173
b. 231.11 = 23111
c. 53. = 53

3. I then need to be able to cross reference those remaining numbers with a set of numbers I have.

Remaining Numbers / My List
a. 173173 / Not on list
b. 23111 / MATCH
c. 53 / Not on list

Cell Changes Decimal To Comma
I have a UserForm with different text boxes, everytime I put a number with decimals (ex 100.23) on a Textbox and I want that number to be shown on a excel cell, VBA changes the "dot" for a "comma" so excel understands it as an integer number 100,23 (10023).

Convert Or Format Decimal To X Digits Without Decimal Point
I am trying to create a unique sample code by putting together the values of other cells that a user will input. It's all working well apart from the last part, where I am trying to include a decimal number. I want the decimal number to appear without the central "." and in a four digit format. e.g. 2.5 would appear as 0250, 14.25 would appear as 1425. This is the formlua I am using currently:


However, where the value of H4 is 2.5, I am getting a result of 0303 (I've put this part in bold). I have attached a small spreadsheet to aid understanding.

Paste Two Decimal Number In Excel Without Extra Decimal Places Appearing
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:...

Cannot Change Cells Number Format
I cannot change the number format in a single sheet of my spreadsheet. I can go to format cells and select colour etc but it will not change the number format.

Another issue on the same sheet is that linked cells i.e cell b3 formula "=A3" displays "=A3" not the actual value in A3. Again, i cannot change the number format of this cell and yes, auto calc is on.

Whilst not wanting to offer a partial explaination (per the rules) just before this happened i was pressing a combitation of Shift+Control+` - not sure if that is relevant.

I want to get the sheet back to its 'normal' working order.

Conditionally Change Number Format Based On Another Cell's Value
Format the number in Column AL to '[hh]:mm' when Column C's value is ="P/T", otherwise format to 'General'

Column C's value is referenced from another sheet in the same workbook via a VLOOKUP function.

Column AL's value is based on an IF formula which goes like this:

Basically the above formula asks if Column C's value is F/T then count (because if F/T then the corresponding values in that row are whole numbers). If not, then SUM (because if P/T the corresponding values in that row are set to [hh]:mm format).

I have another sheet in the same workbook which has code (quoted below) which does something similar but I don't understand it enough to get it doing what I want for the sheet in question.

Convert Cells With Percentage Format To 'same' Decimal In A Column With Mixed Format
I have a column of cells with values - 0.2%, 0.32%, 0.22, 0.5 etc. The cells with % symbol are in ' Percentage, 2 decimal' format while the plain numbers are in 'General' format i.e. column contains cells in either of these formats. I need a macro where I can specify the column and it will select the cells with the % format, convert it to 'General' and multiply the result by 100 eg. 0.2% converted to 'General' becomes 0.002. When multiplied by 100, result is 0.2 i.e. is displayed without the % symbol.

Variable Decimal Format
Cell C9: 1.25773
Cell C10: 20.0
Cell C11: 2.25%
Cell C15: =C9+((C10*C11)/10000)

C9 is a user entered value, currently formated general
C10 is a user entered value, currently formated decimal with one decimal
C11 is a user entered percentage, currently formated percent with two decimals
C15 is a formula calculation, currently formated general

I've tried formating cells to general (and/or) text and the values appear to be correct but still don't show what I want.

The most popular entries for C9 will be:
Any of the above could have one or more trailing zeros.

I would like C15 to show the same amount of decimal places that the user enters in C9. If user enters one, two, three, four, five, etc...decimal places in C9 then show the same amount of decimal places in C15 after the calculation is done and include any trailing 0's that are needed to match the number of decimals in C9.

I've tried different If statements with custom format to try to get the format of C9 transfered to C15 but haven't come across the right way to do this.

Currency Format With 4 Decimal Places
I have a problem with the currency format with 4 decimal places.

Sub go()
Range("C5") = Range("C5") + Range("C4")
End Sub
as you can see it adds the conecnt of "R4" to what is in "R5"

If works fine when the calls are formatted as number with 4 decimal places.
example if R4 is 0.1111 and R5 is 0.2222 after running the macro R5 becomes 0.3333

But if the cells are formatted as currency and 4 decimal places the then excel returns $0.3300

Decimal Format With No Trailing Zeros
I need to never have a trailing zero be displayed but still have decimals displayed (we can use up to 3 digits for the example) Here's a list of test cases


The only time I want to see a 0 is when the answer is 0 (or rounded to 0) or when 0 is required in the middle. This is for patient safety if you are curious. 2.0 when printed out or written by hand can be mistakenly read as "20" in the heat of things, thus 2.0 should be written/printed as "2" (no decimal on the end) not as "2." even, just "2"

Change Default Decimal Points For Numbers
I've got a wierd simple problem in Excel 2003. I have a laptop and a desktop machine, and I'm an accountant who uses the fixed decimal feature as a default, with it set to 2 decimal places.

On the desktop machine, if I input "23." into a cell and then hit enter, the value left in the cell is "23.00" However, on the laptop, when I do the same thing, I get "0.23" In essence, it ignores the fact that I entered a decimal point.

If I enter "23.0" in a sheet on the laptop, it puts "23.00" in the cell.

I thought maybe it was some sort of hardware thing, like the KB was messed up, but then I used remote desktop to try to see what would happen if I enter numbers into the other computer using the laptop, and into the laptop using the desktop. The laptop when connected to the desktop performed normally, just like the desktop machine. The desktop, when connected remotely to the laptop behved like the laptop machine. In other words, I believe this test takes Hardware out of the picture.

Which leaves some strange obsure setting in excel someplace tht is causing this behavior, and I can't seem to find it.

Does anyone here know why these two installs treat the data entry so differently? It's driving me nuts.

Convert Number To Decimal
I need a formula to take the numbers listed in cells D4:D50

If below 1,000,000 than just keep that number value


If the Ten Thousands place is 5 or below leave the same if it is higher round up. (use this concept for ALL PLACE VALUES

1,500,000 to 1.5 million (if the rest are zeros)

4,000,000 to 4 million

1,564,535 than to 1.57 million

1,545,535 than to 1.54 million

1,555,000 than to 1.55 million

Same concept for the rest as the Millions (move the rounded place up as needed)

So for Billions it would be 10 Millions place (to round form) I think lol

1,000,000,000 to 1 Billion

1,500,000,000 to 1.5 Billion

1,560,000,000 to 1.57 Billion

1,578,000,000 to 1.58 Billion

1,700,000,000 to 1.7 Billion

I would like this to continue all the way up to place value 999 QUADILLION! (if possible) if the value can go bigger that would be great!
