Adding Periods to Numbers in Excel

Hi Derek,

Yes, there is a way to add periods to the middle of numbers in Excel. You can use a combination of the LEFT, MID, and RIGHT functions to extract the different parts of the number and then concatenate them with periods in between.

Here are the steps:
1. Assuming your original number is in cell A1, use the LEFT function to extract the first two digits:
Formula:
``` =LEFT(A1,2)  ```
2. Use the MID function to extract the next four digits:
Formula:
``` =MID(A1,3,4)  ```
3. Use the MID function again to extract the next four digits after the first four:
Formula:
``` =MID(A1,7,4)  ```
4. Use the RIGHT function to extract the last two digits:
Formula:
``` =RIGHT(A1,2)  ```
5. Concatenate all the extracted parts with periods in between:
Formula:
``` =LEFT(A1,2)&"."&MID(A1,3,4)&"."&MID(A1,7,4)&"."&RIGHT(A1,2)  ```

This formula will give you the desired output of 52.2535.8000.00 for the number 52253580000.

To apply this formula to all the cells in your worksheet, you can copy and paste the formula down the column or use the Fill Handle to drag the formula down.

You specify a total of 12 digits (2+4+4+2) but your example is only 11. Was
that a mistake, or are you expecting to pad the end with zeros?

Or something like this:

=SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(A2,"##-####-####-##"),"-",".")

Or even this way...

=TEXT(A1,"00\.0000\.0000\.00")

I just noticed the typo the Glenn pointed out. Where did you want the
missing zero placed... at the beginning (if so, then my formula works fine)
or at the end? I would note that Jacob's solution does not work for the
number you posted, so I am guessing that you actually have a 12-digit number
and that the 11-digit number you posted was a typo (I think this because you
said Jacob's formula worked for you). My formula will always work for
12-digit numbers and it will work for a number composed of a smaller number
of digits as long as you want the missing digits to be zero filled at the
beginning.
