Join Dennis Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjust formatting to display large values in thousands, millions, etc., part of Excel Tips Weekly.
- [Instructor] When you deal with large numbers,…as we see in this worksheet here.…Column B has numbers in the billions.…Column C in the millions.…You might want to display these more concisely.…Particularly if you're making a presentation.…Sometimes numbers of this size can be overwhelming.…Now, you can do this without writing formulas.…In other words, we could be dividing these…by a thousand or a million to display them differently,…but we don't need to do that.…We can get here by way of a format.…I'm gonna start with column C…and go right into format cells.…Remember, a quick way to get there is ctrl+1,…or you could right click the column and go to Format Cells.…
And, in the Format Cells dialogue box,…you wanna go to the Number tab.…And then, down to Custom.…Now usually it's best,…although you can start almost anywhere...…Scroll up and down this list, go toward the top,…and we can start with almost any of these.…But how about the fourth one down right here?…Now, I'm going to put in a trailing comma.…That is certainly not obvious,…
