is there a formula that will allow me to exclude the first number to the left of the decimal point.

i.e.

Actual Number             Required  Number

123456.78                   12345.00
987654.32                   98765.00
123.45                         12.00

Possible ??

Thanks in advance

if you have the same logic for all your values (2 decimal places) the  you can use
=LEFT(A5;LEN(A5)-4)
assume your orignal value is in cell A5

PS: please notice that you may need to replace semicolon (;) in the formula by comma (,) based on your Regional settings
