Hi all,
Anyone knows of a formula or combination of formulas to display a number with different decimals depending on a condition?
for example;
If condition A is met, display number with no decimals
if condition B is met, display number with 2 decimals
and
if condition c is met, display number with 4 decimals
help will be greatly appreciated

Hi there!
I got a bunch of data stored in a CSV format, where some of the values are decimal values (two decimals). When I convert this into XLS something strange happens. When the first two digits (before the . and the decimals) are from 1 to 12 the XLS document doesnt display the number, it displays it as a date. I have checked that all my cells are formatted to general, and also tried to format them to scientific with 2 decimals and number with 2 decimals, none of which helps Any idea how to fix this?
(not surprisingly) the values without decimals remains as they wore in the CSV format.
Help will be greatly appreciated!
Id like zeros to appear as 's, and negatives as red with no decimal places.
#,##0;[Red](#,##0)
sorts out red, brackets and decimals but how do I add in the  please?
Thank you
I want to have a blank cell that will be used for input to be formatted to display a specific number of decimal places based on the information in another cell.
if a2 = 'each' then d2 should display 0 decimals
if a2 = 'grams' then d2 should display 5 decimals
is a2 = 'price' then d2 should display 2 decimals
D2 will be a blank cell and the user will be entering a numeric value into this cell. I want the decimal display to be consistent based on the information found in a2. How can this be done??

How can I display leading zeros in an Excel spreadsheet? I am a librarian
trying to type in call #s (for example 001.245) and cannot get zeros to
display in front of other numbers. Clicking zero values at the View tab
under Tools  Options does not work for leading zeros.
Hi,
I have a sheet that is going to be loaded into another program an that program will only accept two decimals. Today the first rows of column B looks like this (I have a couple of hundred rows):
135,155151516
12,151561
124,151651
1,15161111
I need a macro that will round of the decimals too two so it will look like this:
135,16
12,15
124,15
1,15
I can not just change the format too two decimals since the other program will only accept my sheet if row B looks exactly like the example above.
Thanks in advance

It takes 5 clicks and a scroll down in Excel 2007 to untick: "Show a zero in cells that have zero value". And this is just for the current worksheet. Is there no shortcut to stop the display of zeros? Or some way to set the default to NOT display zeros?
Hello,
Using Excel 2007: I have a spreadsheet that is calculating several formulas and placing the sum in specific cells. This works well, except; because of the extensive calculations, there are sometimes 1525 numbers after the decimal. For example, in some cases, the sum displays as 25.3654896523658
I know that I can FORMAT the cell to display a specified number of decimals, however, how do I format the FORMULA to only calculate to TWO decimals. In other words, how do I direct the formula to round off to two decimals in the sum so the above example would read 25.36 in the formula bar.
Thank you in advance for the input.

Hi All
Some of my data begins with zeros, but I cannot see how to display them ie:
I enter 0001234, which displays as 1234 when I wish it to display as 0001234. I can do this by changing cell properties to text, but I wish it to be a number.
Can this be done?
Many thanks Simon
Hello all,
Here is my situation. I am trying to create a list and I am running into some trouble. For example, I am typing the numbers in A1, A2, A3.....all the way down to 1000. I want it too look like this: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, ......1000, 1000, 1000.
I tpye the first 9 in to set a forumula  (A1 A9) 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3
I then highlight that and drag it all the way down. It then berings up decimals in all of the numbers. When I do the normal format, set decimals, etc...., the decimals leave the cell but are still up in the bar. When I mail merge it to my word doc, the decimals appear. This is probably a stupid and easy thing to get rid of but I am at a loss. By now I have simply taken the time to type my numbers by hand but since I will do this a few times, I am hoping for a quicker way.
I am trying to combine and display 3 cells. Cell 2 is variable and based off of another input. The last cell is a three digit alpha numeric sequence. The problem I am having is that the final display is dropping the zeros off the front if there are any.
1 OPAB
2 JG
3 001
4 OPABJG1
How can I get it to display 005 instead of 5 once it is combined with the other two cells?
1 OPAB
2 JG
3 001
4 OPABJG001
Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you.
Here's my problem. I need a formula to take the decimals out of a column but keep ending zeros. I have tried find/replace & several formulas but nothing seems to be working. Here is an example of the numbers in the column and the end result I need. Thanks!!!
9.66 966
0.50 050
13.09 1309
309.98 30998
Which formula in B1 returns the number from A1, with two decimals, rounded in the following way:
If the decimals are anywhere between ,01 and ,49 > ,50
If the decimals are anywhere between ,51 and ,99 > ,00 (+1)
For example:
3,34 > 3,50
2,79 > 3,00
12,02 > 12,50
Thanks!
One of my queries computes age as follows:
Age: (Date()[Birthdate])/365
The result, however, displays the decimal part of the computation. I want the result to be the age without decimals. I do not want it rounded up, which is what happens when I set the number of decimal places as 0.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
I have a sheet that uses an ID number of 11 digits that has 3 leading zeros.
I want to create a new ID for each entry on a new line that is identical to the first entry +1. That is easy to do but the three leading zeros disappear when I apply the formula.
The original number had to be converted to text to display the leading zeros and the formula that I use =A1+1 will not work on the text formated number. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a CSV file I'm importing into Excell that contains leading zeros in a number field. I cannot get the zeros to display in Excel, but the user of the report needs to see them. Is there a way to dsiplay the leading zeros on a number field?
Good afternoon!
I have a spreadsheet in which a validation macro removes and rounds data that contains decimals within the cells;however, I noticed when I converted the spreadsheet to XML the decimals were still being captured and not rounded.
When I went back into the spreadsheet, the cell was rounded (no demimalsas intended), but in the formula bar the data maintained the decimal.
I tried formatting the cells without decimals, but it's not caught if the user cuts and pastes data.
How can I remove the decimals from the data in the formula bar?
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Phil
Hi, all. On a worksheet that someone else provided (I do not have access to the original data) there are numbers displayed across several columns and rows. I need to display those numbers as percentages. When I format the cells to percent, the numbers display with two zeros before the decimal place. (I actually want zero decimal places, but even then there are still two zeros added to the number.) So, 103 becomes 10300%. 95 becomes 9500%. I don't think I've ever encountered this before and can't find a way to prevent this. Any help is appreciated!
Thanks!
Please help. When entering a number such as 001 into a cell it displays it without the zeros. How do it get it to display the zeros?
Recently, without warning, all of my excel spreadsheets have changed so that numbers previously displayed with decimals now have commas instead of period decimals. What might have happened here!? How do I go about changing it back so all decimals are displayed with periods instead of commas?
Thanks so much,
WCB
I have a spreadsheet which has numbers with decimal thousand seperators rather than commas e.g. 178.455.136. If I do a find and replace I get 178,455,136 which is fine.
However there are some numbers e.g. 83.58 which needs to change to 83,580. I can change the number of decimal places of the original to 83.580 but when I do a find and replace it goes back to 83,58. There are also some numbers e.g. 972 which should be 972,000 or 59.3 which should be 59,300. I guess what I probably want is a way to force the original data to have the correct number of zeros at the end.
Hopefully there is a simple solution to this as i don't want to have to go through and add zeros manually.
Thanks for any help,
Lou
I wish to set up my phone numbers in a workbook. Many of these numbers start with zero, and I wish to display these leading zeros, but without using the apostrophe at the beginning, because this converts the information to a text string.
I am using this spreadshet as an input to my mobile phone SIM card, hence the numbers must be integers, not string text.
I would appreciate any help and suggestions
Is there a formula that I can create that will count the number of cells in a range with decimals. I would prefer to use conditioning format because it will hoght light the ones with decimals.
Example:
123.2
124
125
125.6
125.9
Results = 3. There were 3 cells that have decimals.
Help, I have tried to turn off the zeros in the chart options, but this is not working!!! Is there any other way to make a graph not see zeros??? I have zeros that are the result of a formula...I have tried making them "" blanks but still they get charted as ZEROS!!!!
Please help and thank you!!

When I set my cell for Numbers it wants a decimal place. If I set it to 2 decimals then 100.1 (One hundred point one) would look like 100.10 (and print 100.10). If I use 100.10 (One hundred point ten) it looks and prints 100.10. If I set the decimal to one then the problem is reveresed.
Setting to General looks like 100.10 (One hundred point ten) but when using VBa to match numbers it is matched to 100.1 not 100.10.
Now I have it set to Text, but I see when I replace (find & replace) values like find 100 replace 99 the 100.10 becomes 99.1.
Incedently I have a macro that compares (and copies cell values) numbers from one sheet to another and occasionally it skips a number, always a decimal value like 100.10 or 100.1. Or any thing x.10, x.1, x.3, x.19 any combination of x.x or x.xx.
Is there a way to format so decimal numbers are decimal numbers and trailing zeros arent omitted? If the value is one decimal I want one decimal, if its two decimals I want two decimals.
Any hints, tips or examples are appreciated.
p.s.
I print tens of thousands of numbers daily, all unnecessary characters that are omitted is saved ink.
