Formatting to thousands in a table

Occasional Visitor

I have a table (not a pivot table) with large numbers in it e.g. 349652.59 which I have used formatting #,##0, to format to 350. However when I click in the cell the original number (349625.59) is visable.  I don't want that,  I just was to see the 350.  Is there a way to do this?

As far as I can see, you have a decimal point instead of a comma in the number, is this intentional (or is Excel set up that way for you) or is it by mistake and do you mean a comma instead of a decimal point?

Change the character used to separate thousands or decimals

Change the decimal point to a comma or vice versa


Here are some links with options

Round a number to the decimal places I want

If you don’t want unnecessary decimal places in cells because they cause ###### symbols to appear, or you don’t need accuracy down to the microscopic level, change the cell format to get the number of decimal places you want.

You could try converting the number to text and then showing the first 3 digits from the left.


Maybe someone has a more concrete idea :), but I hope that this information could also help you.


Thank you for your understanding and patience

Nope, in cell edit mode (and in formula bar) you see "raw" value, or formula.
