Formula in cell is "=QUOTIENT(9,2)" returns 4.000. Can't change its mind.
tried repair. Office 2000 (Excel) running on XP.

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

It does exactly what it is supposed to do. If you check out the QUOTIENT function in Excel help, you will see the following:

Returns the integer portion of a division. Use this function when you want to discard the remainder of a division.

If you are looking for 4.5, simply use:
=9/2

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
