Show Dollars in Millions
Is there a formula in Excel that changes a calculated dollar figure so that
it just shows in the 000,000's? For example, I have a calculated figure of $15,806,375,100. However, in my chart, I just want to show $15,806. I there a way for Excel to do this so that I don't have to type all my figures manually? Thanks!

Rightclick the chart, and hit Chart Options. Go to the Scale tab, and
choose Show in Millions. ******************* ~Anne Troy www.OfficeArticles.com "morrowjr" > wrote in message ... > Is there a formula in Excel that changes a calculated dollar figure so that > it just shows in the 000,000's?

Set up a custom format of "###," (without the quotes, and the comma is important!) That will show your example as 15806. Can't help with the separator though! (This will round any figure up or down).

If it's calculated, you can amend the formula to divide by 1 million.
Alternatively, you can format the cell and the chart's scale to DISPLAY the # rounded to millions. You just need a custom number format If you are using Currency [0] now, simply select the cell with the value, use FormatCellsNumber and select Custom from the left hand panel and then, in the right hand panel you should see a string that looks like this _($* #,##0_);_($* (#,##0);_($* ""_);_(@_) Change it to the following by adding 2 commas after each zero _($* #,##0,,_);_($* (#,##0,,);_($* ""_);_(@_) Then click on OK. You'll also have to apply that format to the axis and/or to the value "morrowjr" wrote: > Is there a formula in Excel that changes a calculated dollar figure so that > it just shows in the 000,000's?
