I have a easy question, I want to sort a list of numbers, but only by the last two digits? Is there a way to do this, when I got to sort I have the normal options.

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

You'll need to set up another column, I think, which captures the last two digits.
You can do it like this -
Code:
=a1-rounddown(a1,-2)
Then sort on your new column.

I don't think you would want to round these numbers. You might try something like this:

Code:
=VALUE(RIGHT(TEXT(D1,0),2))

Why not round them ? This will work fine (as long as none of the numbers are negative).
