# using decimal percentage values in excel

Hello,

What formula would I need to use in excel for this as excel doesn't calculate 0.35% using this formula  =a1*b1+c1

Ie 15,332.92 * 0.19497503 + 0.35% = 2,999.99

Just add two 0 after the point.

15,332.92 * 0.19497503 + 0.0035 = 2989.54

@Sergei Baklan how should the formula look with the values in the cells like this

 £15,332.92 0.35% 0.194975

# Re: using decimal percentage values in excel

Exactly the same way. If you have value 10 in the cell, Excel could show it to you as 10, as 10.00, as \$10.0, as £10.00, whatever, depends on which format do you use. But it still will be 10. Even better to use references on other cells, not numbers directly, like If you apply to the result currency format, number will be shown in rounded form, but actual value still will be 2999.9999... You shall take that into account, and if in other calculations you'd like to use exactly three thousand pound, use ROUND() function or like.
