Custom Number Format #11

I want a format that will show "35.4" as "35.4 lb/ft" and "35" as "35 lb/ft". 
 The trick being the decimal is not shown for the second number.

I currently use two different versions depending on the number, but I would 
like this to be automaticly done in the format.

Assuming 35.4 is in A1, in another cell, enter =A1&" lb/ft".  Drag that down 
the column to capture the 35 and change it to 35 lb/ft.

Hi

Try formatting as 0.#  "ib/ft"

Another approach:

Format->Cells->Number->Custom->Type general "lb/ft"

I should have shown the two formats I use.
0.0 "lb ft"
and
0 "lb ft"
If I use yours for 35 it will show as 35. lb/ft which is why I need to 
change the format for number without any decimal digits.

MrShorty's method works.  I didn't realise you could use General with other 
stuff in the custom format.

Unfortunately Carole's method is not applicable because I want the cell to 
still be a number.  I just wanted an aesthetic change.

Thanks everyone for your input.

Format/Cells/Number/Custom Type:  General" lb/ft"

However, if the 35.4 is really a calculated number with more precision, you
will have to round it to 1 decimal place within your formula in order to assure
that only one decimal will be displayed.

Hi Steve, Due to a report writer limitation of only being able to have one 1 to many relationship from the SOP_LINE_WORK table, it would take a fair amount of work to add the bin.

memory limit on the number of sheets created
is there a limit on the number of sheets a macro can create? I notice I have a macro that creates sheets and it works up to sheet 26, after sheet 26 it crashes. I read on line that it is limited due to memory? Is that the ram on each computer ? tia, Hi There is no limit imposed by the macro itself. As you have found, the only limit to the number of sheets, is the available memory (RAM) on the system. In most cases you can go way beyond 26 before hitting memory limits. I would think it is something to do with your code. Post the code, and maybe we can help. -- Regards Roger Govier ...
