I have the following code that selects a desired range:

Range(Range("StartEntry").Offset(0, 2), Range("TOTSALE").Offset(-2, 0)).Select

I would like to truncate antying in that range to only 2 decimal places.

Is this possible and if so how with VBA.

You can loop and round all cells in the range, like this

dim rgLoop as range

for each rgLoop in Range(Range("StartEntry").Offset(0, 2), Range("TOTSALE").Offset(-2, 0)).cells
rgloop=round(rgloop,2)
next rgloop

Open in new window

Then this

dim rgLoop as range

for each rgLoop in Range(Range("StartEntry").Offset(0, 2), Range("TOTSALE").Offset(-2, 0)).cells
rgloop=int(rgloop*100)/100
next rgloop

Open in new window

Well its truncating but also making each empty cell's value "0.00"

Here's an update:

dim rgLoop as range

for each rgLoop in Range(Range("StartEntry").Offset(0, 2), Range("TOTSALE").Offset(-2, 0)).cells
rgloop=iif(len(rgloop)=0,"",int(rgloop*100)/100)
next rgloop
