June 6, 2008, Newsletter Issue #259: Excel´s DOLLAR function - what does it do?

Tip of the Week

Excel´s DOLLAR function converts any number to text using the currency format.

If cell A1 contains 123,
=DOLLAR(A1)
will return £123.00 (as text, not as a number).

The default number of decimal places is 2, but the number of decimal places can be modified by adding a comma and a number after the cell reference.

In the above example,
=DOLLAR(A1,5)
Would return £123.00000
