No but you can stop them staying there.

For the date use

you probably have to reformat the first to

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I
try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...Format for credit card numbers
I've tried a custom format for entering credit card numbers (four groups
of four digits, separated by dashes: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx.
I have tried to use ####-####-####-#### and 0000-0000-0000-0000 but
each of these causes the last digit to change to zero. So if I enter
5415779800902512 I get 5415-7798-0090-2510.
Anybody already solved this problem?

The problem is that when i do that, it sums in the last two numbers instead of what i want, so i ask if it is possible to format like this: (text)##.(number)0001.(text)## so it guives me the sum of number then do what i want. if it is possible how ca i do that?
