## How to limit number of decimal places in formula in Excel?

For example, you sum a range and get a sum value with four decimal places in Excel. You may think of formatting this sum value to one decimal place in the Format Cells dialog box. Actually you can limit the number of decimal places in formula directly. This article is talking about limiting number of decimal places with Format Cells command, and limiting number of decimal places with Round formula in Excel.

#### Limit number of decimal places with Format Cell command in Excel

Normally we can format cells to limit the number of decimal places in Excel easily.

1. Select the cells you want to limit the number of decimal places.

2. Right click the selected cells, and select the Format Cells from the right-clicking menu. 3. In the coming Format Cells dialog box, go to the Number tab, click to highlight the Number in the Category box, and then type a number in the Decimal Places box.
For example, if you want to limit only 1 decimal place for selected cells, just type 1 into the Decimal places box. See below screen shot: 4. Click the OK in the Format Cells dialog box. Then you will see all decimals in selected cells are changed to one decimal place. Note: After selecting cells, you can click the Increase Decimal button or Decrease Decimal button directly in the Number group on the Home tab to change the decimal places.

#### Limit number of decimal places in formulas in Excel

Let's say you calculate the sum of a series of numbers, and you want to limit the number of decimal places for this sum value in the formula, how could you get it done in Excel? You should try the Round function.

The basic Round formula syntax is:

=ROUND(number, num_digits)

And if you want to combine the Round function and other formula, the formula syntax should be changed to

=Round(original_formula, num_digits)

In our case, we want to limit one decimal place for sum value, so we can apply below formula:

=ROUND(SUM(B2:B11),1) #### Limit number of decimal places in multiple formulas in bulk

Ok, here is one I really need help with since it would ease my job a lot. I have a table where i need most of my cells to have 2 decimals. One of the columns (lets say C) has to be A multiplied by B, but with a little text following the result of the multiplication, hence i gave it a:
A*B & "text" formula
My problem is that if result of A*B is 3 or 3.1 it will appear just like that: "3 text" or "3.1 text", but i really need it as "3.00 text"/ "3.10text".
Any tips?

I want to set a limit whereas 0.60 is the threshold if the decimal reaches 0.60 it will automatically count as 1 and reset into decimal. The decimal represent the minutes and the whole number represent the hours. I'm presenting my data as numbers instead of timevalue. Hope anyone can help

Unfortunately it is not working if you concatenate:

I want to combine two cells A and B with many digits to A (B) with onlytwo digits.

I tried like that:
=CONCATENATE((ROUND(C4,1))," (",(Round(D4,1)),")")

It doesn't work and shows only the formula.
Can anyone help?

John, to round to 0 decimals, try use ROUND(CELL,0) and to round DOWN to the number, use INT (integer).
ROUND(12.5,0) = 13 ; INT(12.5) = 12
for the same but not to whole number but e.g. tenths, first multiply the baste number by 10, then ROUND/INT and then devide back by ten.

Here we are inserting the values in one cell(A1) and applying the formula in another cell(D1) (for example) and in that cell(D1) only we are getting the output , but I want to apply the formula in cell(A1) only so I can get the output in that cell (A1).
If I am doing this then I am not getting any output in the cell (A1).
