However, if the cells in the list are too many, the manual method will be very tedious. Now I can tell you some tricks to quickly add unit to the cells of a column list in Excel.

Putting the dollar sign after the number shows a lack of intelligence. In fact when it comes to currency the denomination goes in front of the number in just about all languages across the globe. The only time a currency symbol should follow the number is when less than the whole unit is used. For example $0.89 can be displayed as 89¢
