# Take A Number With Several Decimal Places And Round It Up To Two Decimal Places

Feb 27, 2014

I need a formula to take a number with several decimal places and round it up to two decimal places to either .33, .66 or, .00 if its above .66.

For example, 4.23423423423423 will be 4.33
4.43453453533434 will be 4.66
4.8353453453 will be 5.00

Lets say the number is in cell A1. What formula would do this?

## Paste Two Decimal Number In Excel Without Extra Decimal Places Appearing

Aug 13, 2009

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:...

## Round To More Than 30 Decimal Places

Oct 16, 2006

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?

## VBA Function To Find Number Of Decimal Places?

Dec 27, 2011

I need a function to find the number of decimal places of a certain number (in this specific case doubles)

The first solution would be something like this:

Code:
'returns the number of decimal places within a double
Public Function getDecPlaces(inputNum As Double) As Long
Dim ndx As Long
ndx = InStr(1, inputNum, ".")
If ndx > 0 Then
getDecPlaces = Len\$(CStr(inputNum)) - ndx
End If
End Function

But i feel there is likely a much better way of doing this..

## Number Showing Extra Decimal Places In Formula Bar

Aug 22, 2009

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.

## Excel 2007 :: Changing Number To Add Decimal Places

Jan 30, 2013

I am using Excel 2007 and importing a list of coordinates. The coordinates are in a text file and separated by commas, so I'm opening the file as a delimitted file. All of the coordinates import correctly except one. The value is supposed to 52530.6372, but Excel is automatically changing it to 52530.6371999999

If I manually type a "2" to replace the "1999999", it changes it back. If I type "3" it stays as a 3.

I added a round function to force it to round to 4 decimal places and that seemed to work until I then tried using the number with text commands. When I used an ampersand to insert the number into a text string, the additional decimal places are back, even with a round function!

## Variable Type Changing Number Of Decimal Places

May 14, 2014

Here's what I'm doing: I'm using a macro to assign a cell value to a variable then set another cell value to the variable instead of copy/paste (because even pasting values only was affecting other formulas in the file for some reason)

The problem: in using the macro, the number being 'copied' is acquiring a few extra decimal places IE 38334.61 is the original number and 38334.609375 is what I end up with. The numbers come from a CSV with only 2 decimal places and I checked by adding decimal places in the format so it's not a formatting/visible digits issue. Since the values are hour meter readings, the extra decimal places end up with very small values outside 0-24 hrs which messes with sorting and usage %. The values are so small all of them together in a month add up to a fraction of a cent but it's one of those things that bugs my OCD by not being right.

My VBA book explains the min/max capabilities, content type, memory bits but not fiddly details like this.

So my question is this: right now I'm declaring the clipboard-substitue variable as an single, is there a different one that would work better without adding anything? Criteria are: numeric, 6 digits before the decimal, 2 after, all positive values. (Ie 123456.12)

EDIT: fixed my senior moment.

## Define Number Of Decimal Places To Specific Textboxes On Multi Textbox Useform

May 16, 2012

I have a userform with 35 text boxes on which display data from a worksheet based on a selection made from a combobox.

My problem is that TextBox11 and TextBoxes 15-35 all need to show a value to 2 decimal places i.e 360.00.

I have found the following line of code:

Code:

For Each ctrl In Controls
If TypeName(ctrl) = "TextBox" Then ctrl.Value = Format(ctrl.Value, ".00")
Next ctrl

Which does the job but unfortunatley it applies it to every single textbox on the form (not just No's 11,15-35) which is a problem as some of the boxes contain dates so instead of 09/05/2012 i actually get 41038.00.

My question is how to I modifiy the above code (or is there an alternative code?) to only apply to the required textboxes?

## Decimal Places And INT?

Aug 5, 2013

I was going to use the following to test that a number has no more than two decimal places,

Code:

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

## Fix Decimal Places On Entry

Sep 4, 2006

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.

## Show As Many Or As Little Decimal Places In Any Cell

Dec 11, 2008

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.

## Converting Units And Decimal Places.

Nov 23, 2009

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?

## Rounding Decimal Places In Increments?

c)2.97 to the nearest 0.25 would result 3.00

## Excel 2010 :: Getting Rid Of Decimal Places

Apr 8, 2013

Using Excel 2010

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.

## Formatting Of A Cell To 2 Decimal Places

Feb 24, 2010

if I change the formatting of a cell to 2 decimal places, it appears as two decimal places (as it should) for example \$88.88888 will show as \$88.88

However, when I use this data in another application that displays this data it will display as 88.88888 still. I need to actually take the value and truncate it to 88.88 eg 8.8888888 will become 8.88

I have been using trunc by hand and wanted to try and find out if there is a way that I could write some sort of macro to do this for me each time.

## Limiting A Cell To 2 Decimal Places

Oct 23, 2008

How do I stop a user from entering more than 2 decimal places?

If I format the cell to "0.00" I can still type in 1234.1234 and it will display 1234.12.
If I select that cell, the value in the formula bar is still 1234.1234.
