#### How many decimal places can a cell display?

```How many decimal places can be displayed in a cell?  I'm running a brute
force VBA procedure of finding fractions that will approximate pi to as many
decimal places as Excel will display, but I don't know how many decimal
places Excel will display accurately.  Anybody know?  I guess this is also a
matter of how many decimal places VBA will calculate accurately as well.

Sub PiFractions()
Dim dividend As Integer, divisor As Integer, quotient As Double
Dim rowpointer As Byte

rowpointer = 1

For dividend = 22 To 10000
For divisor = 7 To dividend \ 3
quotient = dividend / divisor
If quotient > 3.14159 And quotient < 3.1416 Then
Cells(rowpointer, 1) = dividend
Cells(rowpointer, 2) = divisor
Cells(rowpointer, 3) = quotient
rowpointer = rowpointer + 1
End If
Next
Next

End Sub

```

>decimal places as Excel will display,

Hi.  At 15 digits, I believe the minimum fraction for Pi is:

=80143857/25510582

As a side note, the limit in vba is:
Num = 428224593349304#
Den = 136308121570117#

Debug.Print CDec(Num) / Den
' 3.1415926535897932384626433833

```Here is one that shows 15 digits

? application.pi()
3.14159265358979

or in the worksheet
=pi()

and format the cell to show 14 decimals.

```Excel's numeric display limit is on significant figures, not decimal places.
Excel (like almost all software) follows the IEEE standard for double
precision binary representation of numbers.
http://www.cpearson.com/excel/rounding.htm
In particular, all 15 digit and most 16 digit integers can be exactly
represented.  But rather than explain why some 16 digit numbers unavoidably
change value from what you enter, MS chose to display only 15 digits (See
Help for "specifications").
and It requires 17 decimal digits to uniquely specify a double precision
binary number, and An exact conversion from binary to decimal of a floating
point number may require many more than 17 decimal digits

If you want to write a routine that will handle more precision than Excel
natively gives, you might find the VBA code at that last link instructive.
There are some Excel add-ins like
http://digilander.libero.it/foxes/index.htm
http://precisioncalc.com/

Also there are commercial packages like Maple, Mathematica,
MacSyma and open source packages like Maxima
http://maxima.sourceforge.net/
that implement algebraic math and user-specified numeric precision.

```While better than xl97 (as Tom showed), formatting as a fraction is still not
entirely reliable when you request many digits.  The DP (IEEE double
precision) approximation to Pi is exactly
884279719003555/281474976710656
which has a 15 digit denominator.  However, you get the same value as the DP
approximation to
245850922/78256779
which only has an 8 digit denominator.

scanner can't read barcodes on paper
My barcode scanner can't seem to read barcodes that I printed out. I will not barcodes on receipt either. any suggestions will be great. Thanks I had the same problem. I only had this problem with certain barcodes. When I looked at the ones that the scanner wasn't reading, I noticed that they all used lower case letters. As soon as I changed the letters to upper case I was able to scan the labels.

Migration: Migrated custom fields can't sync with plan
We migrated a set of enterprise global fields from 2003 to 2007. However, some of the post migration changes to these fields can't be reflected into project professional for all plans. Example, we have a project outline code in 2003 called Portfolio, which is a hierarchical set of values. In 2003, we allowed selection of non-leave node and didn't allow multi-selection. After migration, we changed the settings of the field to allow only leave node and multi-selection. However, these changes are neither picked up by migrated project plans nor newly created project plan....

Can you work this backwards
Previously I used 3 simple formulas (if statements) to calculate a charge, so if E9 =3D=A33000 then the formula for the charge was =3DIF(E9<=3D1000;E9*1.1;"=A3100") then =3DIF(AND(E9>1000;E9 <=3D2000);(E9-1000)*0.9;"=A3200") =3DIF(E9>2000;(E9-2000)*0.5;) Total Cost ... of above 3 items plus E9 (=A33000) Now people are asking to spend a total of =A33000 including the charge, so now Total Cost is to be =A33000 and then I have to work back to find E9. How is the best way to do this please. Bob Hi, Use the "Solver" utility in Excel. Let us suppose ...

how do I get the if function to return a blank cell, not 0?
I am trying to create a chart from a series that contains data for each month. The series is calculated on other worksheets and copied to the worksheet containing the chart. I would like to have the cells for the months that have not been updated yet (now is January, there are 0' in all cells for Feb-Dec) to be blank (to create gaps in the chart) not 0's. Can this be done? Unfortunately, what you want, and what many of us have requested but doesn't exist, is a worksheet function like BLANK() or NULL(). The best we can do is use NA() in a chart's data source, which is...

Can you set up a Word document to accept present tense only?
I was told that you could set a document up using Microsoft Word 2007 to only accept present tense. Is this true? If so, how do you do it? Word 2007 has a "Find all word forms" option in the Find and Replace dialog. This, among other things, will let it search for all verb forms (among other things). That might be what the person was talking about. For example, with this option enabled, if I search for "have", it will also match "having". If I search for "is", it will also match are, be, was, and were (for example). But, there's nothin...
