Use the custom number format to display a numeric value in thousands, millions, billions, or trillions. The factoring is accomplished by inserting extra commas, one for each factor of 1,000, immediately before the decimal point in a custom number format.

To display 1,234,567 as 1,234.6 use the custom number format:

   #,##0,.0

To display 1,234,567 as 1.2 use the custom number format:

   #,##0,,.0

and if you want to add in the currency symbols, plus the "m" for millions, try this add-on to Zorvek's suggestion:
 $#,##0.0,,"m"

Yes, the formats mentioned above are at the cell or range level.  Not a global change to a workbook or worksheet.   Highlight the range of cells you want to display as millions and right mouse click to display to sub menu and select "Format Cells".Format Cells  In the resulting Format Cells dialog box under the numbers tab, select "Custom" and paste the format that Kevin or DanCh99 suggested in the "Type" area as indicated in the picture below.Format Cells Custom
