I have a text file with dollar amounts. The problem is the amounts have no decimal places in them. For example 00015825 I brought that information into excel and I want to display it with a decimal. The last 2 digits are the decimal. so i want excel to display 158.25 How do I do that?

Thanks,
--Robert

Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN
