Hi all,

Grateful for assistance.

I have a long column of amounts (currency 2 dec) in an Excel worksheet. I have accidentally entered three digits after the decimal point for a particular amount .

I would like to run a formula in a side column which can identify the elusive amount with the third digit.

Thanks

I had thought:

 of multiplying the amount by 100, then converting the result to a value and then checking the last digit to see if it is greater than zero thereby identifying that cell with the elusive amount.

If all you want is to identify them instead of fixing them, you can use formula like
=if(a1-round(A1,2)=0,"","3 Dec Places"

If you want to fix it, you can simply do =round(a1,2), =roundup(a1,2), or =rounddown(a1,2), and copy the formula down the list. Copy the formulated column and paste back to the original column using Paste Special Value.
