Copy & Paste value Function
When Copy and Paste Value, I get numbers in 6 to 7 numbers from decimal
points. Meaning it will post the value for example xx.xxxxxx. Is there a way that I can paste the value by two decimal points only. Again for example xx.xx instead of xx.xxxxxx. Thanks in advance for the solution. DS

Paste Values does exactly what it says on the tin and only pastes values.
This means that your data will take on whatever format the cell has, so if it hasn't been formatted as anything before it will default to general and you will get a load of decimals as you are seeing. I'm guessing that what you really want to do is simply do it twice, paste as normal which will likely give you garbage data but the correct formats, and then do paste special as values and you get the best of both worlds.

Hi don, After formatting, visibly there are only two decimals, but when you
click on the cell, it has more than two decimals. How do I truncate the more than two deicmal points?
