Hi,

Has anyone had excel count the number of places based on a decimal value. For examle, if a cell displays 1.3, can excel determin that there are 13 places if you count by tenths? Does that make sense?

Press Ctrl+` to show all formulas. Press it again to toggle back to numbers. The grave accent is often under the tilde on US keyboards.

You would just divide by the step size, e.g.

=1.3/.1

Not really, but for your example why not just multiply by 10?

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean.

I think I am just overcomplicating something that is simple. I can divide by the .1 but I was just more wonder if there was a formula that would take its place. Thanks both for the responses
