FIXED function

Rounds a number to the specified number of decimals, formats the number in decimal format using a period and commas, and returns the result as text.

Syntax

FIXED(number,decimals,no_commas)

Number     is the number you want to round and convert to text.

Decimals     is the number of digits to the right of the decimal point.

No_commas     is a logical value that, if TRUE, prevents FIXED from including commas in the returned text.

Remarks

  • If decimals is negative, number is rounded to the left of the decimal point.
  • If you omit decimals, your system locale setting will be used to determine the number of decimal places.
  • If no_commas is FALSE or omitted, then the returned text includes commas as usual.
