Suppose A1 number is 120000.00. Now I want to separate it by 1000 & 100, i.e.
1,20,000.00. If I format the cell - Number & click on 1000 separatetor. It
show like 120,000.00. Is there any custom format to show 1,20,000.00 in excel

May you also have a nice day.

Sorry, but when i write 100 it shows 0,00,100.00 that looks odd. when
a figure should be less that 100,000.00 then it should look as usual.

Help required.

hi, shaqil !

you can "hide" leading commas if you "play" with custom formats (i.e.)

[>=100000]#\,##\,##0.00;#,##0.00

[>9999999]##\,##\,##\,##0;[>99999]##\,##\,##0;#,##0

for negative numbers try with the following custom number format:
[<-9999999]-##\,##\,##\,##0;[<-99999]-##\,##\,##0;#,##0

(however) you won't be able to mix positive/negative number using only one format
so, you might want to give a try an extra cell/column and ws-functions
(i.e.) assuming the number in 'A1':

=text(a1,rept("##\,",match(len(abs(a1)),{3;4;6;8})-1)&"##0")

hth,
hector.

You are responding to a thread that is nearly 3.5 years old. You do
not really think anyone is paying attention, do you? It would be
better to start a new thread of your own.

In any case, it would behoove you to read the entire thread. You
should have noticed that Gary's Student posted a corrected response
with the following suggestion:

Custom format 0\,00\,000.00

Personally, I don't think that is adequate since it can result in the
odd result ,,123 for smaller values. I would suggest:

Custom format [<1000]0.00;[<100000]0\,000.00;0\,00\,000.00

Unfortunately, that works only up to 99,99,999.99. Larger values will
have the form 123,45,678.99, which is probably not desirable.

Nothing you can do about it, though, at least not without an event
macro. The condition-value custom format is limited to conditions, at
least in XL2003.
