Description

0 (zero)

Displays insignificant zeros if a number has fewer digits than there are zeros in the format. For example, if you type 8.9, and you want it to be displayed as 8.90, use the format #.00.

#

Follows the same rules as the 0 (zero). However, GoFormz does not display extra zeros when the number that you type has fewer digits on either side of the decimal than there are # symbols in the format. For example, if the custom format is #.##, and you type 8.9 in the cell, the number 8.9 is displayed.

. (period)

Displays the decimal point in a number.

  • If a number has more digits to the right of the decimal point than there are placeholders in the format, the number rounds to as many decimal places as there are placeholders. If there are more digits to the left of the decimal point than there are placeholders, the extra digits are displayed. If the format contains only number signs (#) to the left of the decimal point, numbers less than 1 begin with a decimal point; for example, .47

Placeholder
Description

, (comma)

Displays the thousands separator in a number. GoFormz separates thousands by commas if the format contains a comma that is enclosed by number signs (#) or by zeros. A comma that follows a digit placeholder scales the number by 1,000. For example, if the format_text argument is "#,###.0,", GoFormz displays the number 12200 as 12,200.0.

Time Formats

h

Displays the hour as a number without a leading zero.

[h]

Displays elapsed time in hours. If you are working with a formula that returns a time in which the number of hours exceeds 24, use a number format that resembles [h]:mm:ss.

hh

Displays the hour as a number with a leading zero when appropriate. If the format contains AM or PM, the hour is shown based on the 12-hour clock. Otherwise, the hour is shown based on the 24-hour clock.

m

Displays the minute as a number without a leading zero.

NOTE: The m or the mm code must appear immediately after the h or hh code or immediately before the ss code; otherwise, GoFormz displays the month instead of minutes.

[m]

Displays elapsed time in minutes. If you are working with a formula that returns a time in which the number of minutes exceeds 60, use a number format that resembles [mm]:ss.

mm

Displays the minute as a number with a leading zero when appropriate.

NOTE: The m or the mm code must appear immediately after the h or hh code or immediately before the ss code; otherwise, Excel displays the month instead of minutes.

s

Displays the second as a number without a leading zero.

[s]

Displays elapsed time in seconds. If you are working with a formula that returns a time in which the number of seconds exceeds 60, use a number format that resembles [ss].

ss

Displays the second as a number with a leading zero when appropriate. If you want to display fractions of a second, use a number format that resembles h:mm:ss.00.

AM/PM
am/pm
A/P
a/p
