how do i get only the decimal value in excel
Hi  there is a way to return the fractional part of a number (in a
fractional form) using a function (or two) in Excel. If you want a positive value for the fractional part of the number (irrespective of the sign of your particular number), place your number of interest (e.g. 23.45) in cell A1 and try this formula: =ABS(A1TRUNC(A1)) If you want the fractional part of the number to reflect the sign of your particular number (e.g. 0.45 for 23.45), place your number of interest (e.g. 23.45) in cell A1 and try this formula: =A1TRUNC(A1) I hope that helps.

Hi vardoo, =A1INT(A1) will return 0.45 =(A1INT(A1))*100 will return 45 HTH Martin

Thanks, Martin. Vardoo and Martin  I would only note two things regarding
the two formulas below (1) if you use INT instead of TRUNC with negative numbers, different results will be returned for different numbers (e.g. the below INT formula will return 0.55 if you pass in 23.45 as the argument  the Excel help file provides good coverage of the difference between INT and TRUNC) and (2) the use of a multiplier to remove the decimal point from the result can get more involved if you are not sure that the fractional part of the number will contain two digits (e.g. 45). I hope that helps. "MartinW" wrote: > > Hi vardoo, > > =A1INT(A1) will return 0.45 > > =(A1INT(A1))*100 will return 45 > > HTH > Martin > > >
