I want to be able to type in a 4 + digit number without excel automatically assigning a decimal point for 2 places.  I can only get 4 digits, for example, if I end the series of numbers with a manual decimal point.  I have reloaced Microsoft Office completely, and excel still does this.  For example, I can type in the number 1121 in Column A, and it appears when I tab out of it as 11.21.  I can increase the decimals and it will appear as 11.210, 11.2100, 11.21000, etc.  I can decrease the decimals and it will round off to 11.  How can I fix this?

Hi proactiveit,
In the Tools...Options...Edit menu item, you have the ability to fix the number of decimal places. If you uncheck the option for Fixed decimal places, Excel will let you type a four digit number and let it become 1121.

Hoping to be helpful,

Brad

Can you not just format the cell as number and set the decimal places to 0 (zero) or am I reading the question wrong :)
