Answer: Adding periods (full stops) to the middle of numbers
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:
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.

Was that a mistake, or are you expecting to pad the end with zeros?

Or something like this:
=SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(A2,"############"),"",".")

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 12digit number and that the 11digit number you posted was a typo (I think this because you said Jacob's formula worked for you). My formula will always work for 12digit 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.
