Hi Sunny,


How about if I need to add a period three characters from the left? Some examples would be K900>K90.0, K8071>K80.71, K50813>K50.813.


Thanks!
Nicole

If you have Kutools for Excel, you can use the Add Text function to quickly solve it, just need to type . into Text box, and enter 3 into Specify as below screenshot shown.

If you do not have Kutools for Excel, you can try this formula =LEFT(A1,3) & "." & MID(A1,4,100), 3 indicates the place you want to add period, 4 indicates 3+1

You can do that with the cell format (Format/Cells - Number tab / Custom). Write this in the 'Type' field: 0\.0\.0 This format works fine with numbers of exactly 3 digits. a zero will be shown in place of missing digits. If your number has more than 3 digits the extra digits will be shown before the first period. Replacing 0 with # will avoid showing zeros in place of missing digits, but there is no way to prevent as many periods from being written as the format holds, regardless of how many digits your number has. I hope this can meet your requirement.

Hello, BALARAJ, you mean to add / in the end of every number? If so, using Add text of Kutools for Excel, then add / into the textbox, check after last character option.

For the "Format Cells" option to work as intended *in all cases*, replace '.' with '"."'. Which means, make it like this: 0"."
Otherwise in some cases you get an empty cell and you'll have no idea why (like me). This is probably due to how period is treated due to localization and language settings.

Thank you. I was trying to input P.000.000000-0 but the format cells would just change it to P.0.000.000.00-0.
Following this comment I've tried P.000"."000000-0 but it didn't work for some reason. I only needed to change to P.00"."000000-0 to make it work, though.

Hi, Giagia, try this formula=SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(N16, ",","",1), ",", "",SUM((LEN(N16)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(N16,",",""))))-1), N16 is the cell you use. Hope it can help you.

Hi, PAULO SERGIO MACHADO, sorry that I only can reply with English. I have not found a formula can solve your problem. But there is a roundabout way can help you. Using Text to Columns to split your string into three columns based on blank, one is PMA, one is R$, the other one is number, then format the number column as Comma Style (Home tab, Number group), then combine them together with formula =A1 &A2 &A3, A1, A2 and A3 are the three split cells.

How do I tell excel to put a period in a blank cell and ignore cells that have numbers?
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Hi, Laura Z, if you want to add a period to all blank cells in a range, just select the range, then press Ctrl + G to enable the Go To dialog, and click Special to the Go To Special dialog, check Blanks option and click OK. Now all blank cells in the range are selected. click a period in the formula bar, press Ctrl + Enter key, all blank cells are filled with a period.
