    Formatting in Thousands (2000)

    Hey, I have a spreadsheet with calculated values carried out to the 2nd decimal place. Per my bosses request, he'd like me to display in thousands only. For example, $388,000 displayed as $388.

    Can you advise on how to do universally on the spreadsheet as a whole without dividing each individual cell by 1,000???

    Thanks.

    Set the number format for the cells you want to display thousands to the custom format <code>0,</code> or <code>#,</code>

    Select the cells and format cells - numbers(tab) custom:
    #,##0,

    or even
    0,

    if you do not want the commas if you go into the millions

    I am sure you realize this, but for the sake of others who might not be aware of the difference:
    Be careful with #, Any number <500 will display nothing, while if you use 0, the numbers <500 will display as zero (0).

    It depends on what you are after...

    It is a zero, but I used <!t>
    Code:
    <!/t> and <!t>
    <!/t> tags around the format.
