Excel other number

Occasional Contributor

Hello, when I write in a cell a number (for example 40), I would like to, not see the number, but 24,84 for example.


And this for some other numbers too if this is possible. I don't know where I have to do this so I can get this result. All the numbers that have to change are in E so the number can also be in D, but can only change in E.


Thank you so much for answering.

Have a nice day!

Not clear what do you want to do? Can you show some sample data and desired output?

@Harun24HR Of course, thank you for your answer! 



You cannot do this with a formula, for a formula cannot refer to the cell itself. You need VBA code in the worksheet module:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim rng As Range
    If Not Intersect(Range("E2:E1000"), Target) Is Nothing Then
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        For Each rng In Intersect(Range("E2:E1000"), Target)
            Select Case rng.Value
                Case 40
                    rng.Value = 24.84 ' VBA uses decimal point, not comma
                Case 401
                    rng.Value = 27.32
                Case 25
                    rng.Value = 31.15
                ' add other cases as needed
            End Select
        Next rng
        Application.EnableEvents = True
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End If
End Sub

See the attached version of your workbook. It is now a macro-enabled workbook, so you will have to allow macros. Right-click the sheet tab and select 'View Code' from the context menu to inspect and edit the code.
