May 29, 2014

content from form is captured via formulas to a CIMLoad format on another tab

Users keep entering four to six decimal places in weight value

## Excel 2007 :: Limit To 2 Decimal Places Precision

Oct 14, 2013

Is there a way I can get excel (2007) to limit itself to 2 decimal places for all numbers entered? So effectively I don't want use the formulas TRUNC or ROUND (or any other formula) but I would like rather excel to behave like my calculator where I can limit the decimals to 2 no matter how many I input.

In other words, every time a input a number, excel will round it up automatically to 2 decimal places and the number available will have 2 decimals only. Is there any option hidden somewhere in the Excel options that I couldn't find?

## Limit Text Length In Cell With Formula By Data Validation?

Jan 25, 2014

Can I limit the text length in a cell that contains a formula? You may say "Limit the text length in the input cell". That can't be done because the formula in the resultant cell takes text from two other cells in addition to the input cell. I need to limit the overall text length to, let say, 50 characters.

## 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

## Number Showing Extra Decimal Places In Formula Bar

## Concatenate Formula Not Taking Decimal Places/currency Sign

May 26, 2009

i have lets say a table with rows that contain the following data.

SKU - PRICE - SALEPRICE - DESCRIPTION - SALEDESCRIPTION

What I am trying to do, is to make a concat formula that says:

SALEDESCRIPTION = DESCRIPTION+price was+PRICE+now+SALEPRICE

In essence so that i can simply pull down the formula, and all our product descriptions have 'special offer, was xx (price) is now xx (sale price).

This works fine, except that in the SALEDESCRIPTION, the amounts from the price and saleprice fields are being brought over without decimal places and without currency symbol.

I have tried formatting those two columns as currency or accounting but neither works.

## 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:...

## Creating Maximum Limit Formula?

Dec 9, 2011

I am in the process of creating a template in excel with certain restrictions on the information that can be added to it. I've hunted several sites and forums to try and find a solution but find it difficult to see the best ones for my project. The template is roughly made up of say 10 references to large boxes, each box can hold smaller boxes. The smaller boxes vary in size. For example the large box is 60 inches long smaller boxes vary between 20 inches and 40 inches, can excel be made to tell me an error if i try to put 2 x 40 boxes in columns refering to 1 of the larger boxes as it exceed the maximum length of 60 inches?

## 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.

## 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.

## Format Cell With Concatenated Contents To 2 Decimal Places

Dec 3, 2013

I have a list of cells that has two values concatenated. The first I would like to round to 2 decimal places, and the second is always a integer

Consider this formula..

Code:
=IF(SUMIFS('Analysis Data'!\$I\$5:\$I\$1840,'Analysis Data'!\$C\$5:\$C\$1840,3,'Analysis Data'!\$E\$5:\$E\$1840,1)=0,0,SUMIFS('Analysis Data'!\$I\$5:\$I\$1840,'Analysis Data'!\$C\$5:\$C\$1840,3,'Analysis Data'!\$E\$5:\$E\$1840,1)/COUNTIFS('Analysis Data'!\$C\$5:\$C\$1840,3,'Analysis Data'!\$E\$5:\$E\$1840,1,'Analysis Data'!\$I\$5:\$I\$1840,">0"))
&"("&COUNTIFS('Analysis Data'!\$C\$5:\$C\$1840,3,'Analysis Data'!\$E\$5:\$E\$1840,1,'Analysis Data'!\$I\$5:\$I\$1840,">0")&")"

In one cell this yields the value;

2.42553191489362(47)

In another it yields 2.975(40)

and so on..

I would like to format it to display as 2.43(47) and 2.98(40)

FWIW this means average of 2.43 games refereed per session in 47 sessions of refereeing.

## Using Data Validation To Limit Entry Of Number Of Characters In A Cell

Jan 24, 2014

When you want to use Data Validation to limit the entry of the number of characters to a cell does this apply only to the cell that you are entering the characters or can it also apply to a cell that contains a LEN(A1) formula, for instance? Also,does the Data Validation limitation function includes spaces as well? Will the message appear while you are entering the characters (when it has reached the limit) or will it wait until you have hit Enter?

## Decimal Places For Close Ties Of Numbers Based On Cell Value

Apr 15, 2008

I have a pivot table of values displaying agency's performance based on their sales percentage to target. When the race is 'loose', and all companies are 1 or more percentage point away from each other, I format the values without decimal places. If two agencies appear tied, I add a decimal place to seperate them. Occasionally the race is really tight and I have to increase the format to two decimal places to seperate them. how to do this automatically?

## 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.

## 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.

## Data Validation To Limit Entry - Two Criteria

Aug 30, 2012

I need cell H18 to look at cell F4, and if the value in cell F4 is 'CFB', I need validation to limit the entry in cell H18 to the values in a named range 'pripro' to populate. That part I know how to do. (=pripro)

But if the value in F4 is CCP, I need H18 to allow anything. I'm having trouble adding this to the first part.
