I want to show a daily pay to 2 places.  What function do I need if A1 is your monthly income?   My cell is:

="your daily pay is:" & A1/30

This does not restrict "A1/30" to 2 decimal places as I need.

Change your formula as below to roundup to 2 decimal places.
="your daily pay is:" & ROUND(A1/30,2)

Thank you for the effort but your solution doesn't work if you have a mixture of text and numbers in your cell.
