Folks,
I've been trying to set the numberformat to display a specific format with VBA:
Selection.NumberFormat = "##0"

Open in new window

That did not work not has other formats I've tried.

Here's my objective
123
1230
0

What is the correct NumberFormat to meet my objective?

Not certain I follow...
Can you show the number you have in the cell and the number you want it to be displayed like. i.e.
123 - should become - 1230
or
123 - should become - 120
or
something else?

Your code is working for me, so I obviously am not understanding your question.

Could you please post both cell contents and how you want them displayed?

This is the type of format I need to show.
A1 = 123
A2 = 1230
A3 = 0
(All numbers are integers)

Sometimes I get nothing when the value is 0
Sometime I get 001230 when the value is 1230

Sorry to be dense but you are not clear on what the raw number in the cell is and how you want it to be displayed.

If you don't want commas, leading zeros or decimal points, how about:
Selection.NumberFormat = "#;-#;0;@"

byundt's format worked.
To the two of you I apologize for being rather vague.
Thank you both
