Custom Number Formats  Billion Dollars Rounded
Ok. Thanks to the discussion group I was given the following custom
formatting setting so that I could round numbers. [=1000000000] $#,###,, "Billion";[=1000000]$#,, "Mil"; $#, "k" The above will formatt this $1,965,532 into this $2 Mil But will also formatt this $1,838,928 into this $2 Mil I need to adjust the custom number formatting so that I get the following instead $1.9 Mil $1.8 Mil Any suggestions?  coastal

Answer: Custom Number Formats  Billion Dollars Rounded
Yes, I have a suggestion for you to adjust the custom number formatting to display the numbers in the format you need.
You can modify the custom number formatting by adding a new condition to check if the number is less than 1 billion but greater than or equal to 1 million. If the number meets this condition, you can divide it by 1 million and display it with one decimal place followed by "Mil". Here are the steps to modify the custom number formatting:
Now, when you enter a number less than 1 billion but greater than or equal to 1 million, it will be displayed in the format you need, with one decimal place followed by "Mil". For example, if you enter $1,965,532, it will be displayed as $2.0 Mil, and if you enter $1,838,928, it will be displayed as $1.8 Mil.

woops,
I mean [=1000000000] $#,###,, "Billion";[=1000000]$#.0,, "Mil"; $#, "k" But 1,965,532 will round up to 2.0 mil because 60,000 is rounding up causing 900,000 to round up to the next mil 1,945,532 should round to 1.9 mil.

Just noticed your format for billion is wrong. It's formatting 1.5 Billion
as 1,500 Billion. Try this: [=1000000000] $#,##0.0,,, "Billion";[=1000000]$#0.0,, "Mil"; $#, "k" Tyro "Tyro" wrote in message ...

Another thing:
1,838,928,000 will be displayed as $1,839 Billion, which is technically incorrect. That would either be 1.8 billion or 1,839 million (sorry about the nerdy analness). Thought I'd let you know. If it is for something official, you might want to change that or it might look like your numbers are off by 3 decimal places. If it is just for yourself, just keep that in mind. [=1000000000] $#.0,, "Billion";[=1000000]$#.0,, "Mil"; $#, "k" will get you "$1.8 Billion" [=1000000000] $#,###,, "Million";[=1000000]$#.0,, "Mil"; $#, "k" will get you "$1,839 Million" HTH, Conan "Conan Kelly" wrote in message ... woops, I mean [=1000000000] $#,###,, "Billion";[=1000000]$#.0,, "Mil"; $#, "k" But 1,965,532 will round up to 2.0 mil because 60,000 is rounding up causing 900,000 to round up to the next mil 1,945,532 should round to 1.9 mil.
