How do I display millions and billions like this $15M or $10B and still be able to calculate it?

I need to create a chart for a client that uses these formats, such as $0.2B or $10M and since it's a bar chart, I need it to pick up the values.

You could use a custom cell format for your source data, not sure exactly where you want to break from M to B or how much you want the displayed numbers rounded though. Ex:


[>99999999]#.##,,," B";[>99999]#.##,," M"


Thank you for your response, but I'm not sure how to use your custom cell formula.




Nevermind, I figured it out.  Thanks again.  It was a big help!
