Hello,

I have the following formula in an excel cell:

="Test text $"&(C10-D10)&" test text"

I would like the value in the middle to return as two decimal places. Currently it only returns as 1 decimal place.

e.g: Test text $32.4 test text

But I want: Test text $32.40 test text

How do I edit the formula so it returns two decimal places?

Thanks for your help
