how to divide a numbers in a table of data by 1,000, all at once
I've noticed in some spreadsheets that numbers are displayed as
rounded...i.e. so that one isn't looking at 1,403,333 + 2,333,999 etc. but rather 1403 + 2334, etc. with a note at the top that says "000's". In one step, how can I edit all the numbers in a table so that they show to the nearest 10,000 (i.e. 1403 +2334), without dividing them one by one by 1,000? Or, to go at it from another angle, how do I divide each # by 1,000? The ROUND feature requires that I create a new table. Not exactly what I'm looking for.

Answer: how to divide a numbers in a table of data by 1,000, all at once
To divide all the numbers in a table by 1,000 and display them rounded to the nearest 10,000, you can use the following steps:
This format code will divide each number by 1,000 and display it rounded to the nearest 10,000, with a "K" suffix to indicate thousands. For example, the number 1,403,333 will be displayed as 140, while the number 2,333,999 will be displayed as 233. If you want to apply this format to a whole table of data, you can select the entire table and follow the same steps. All the numbers in the table will be divided by 1,000 and displayed in the same format.

Enter 1000 in an unused cell.
Copy that cell. Select the range to change and editpaste specialdivideokesc. Delete the cell with 1000 Alternative for cell display only which shows 1,403 but leaves the original value as 1403000..............better method in my mind.
