# fixing distances to 3 decimal places when using Concatenate

Hi there,

when using the Concatenate() command, was wondering how you go about making the distances only show 3 decimal places.

EG at current I have CONCATENATE(BEARING,BEARING SYMBOL,MIN,,,SECS,"~10.000000112)

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Warmest Regards,

Rob

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Whatever part has the number, use the Text function to specify the decimal places.

For example, if A1 contains: "The Length is: "
and B1 contain: 10.500
then your formula would look like:
Code:
``=CONCATENATE(A1,TEXT(B1,"0.000"))``
