Very nice, but for 0,06 it displays 000000,06 (it keeps the 8 characters even for numbers)
Any way to change it afterwards  to 0,06 maybe?
Thanks

then try to remove leading zeros from my result by multiple it with 1 in next cell - see attachment
you can have additional columns then, or just to hide helping columns
