numbers – enclose contents of cell in brackets, ms excel, format

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I would like to format the contents of my MS excel cell so that every number (all the entries are numeric) is enclosed in brackets like so:

[-23.293], [23.394]

I used custom format and specified the format as "["00.000"]". However, this produces entries like this:

-[23.293], [23.394]

I cannot figure out how to fix this. Does anyone have any ideas?

How to&Answers:

specify the custom format as "["00.000"]";"["-00.000"]".
The second parameter is the way negative numbers are displayed. If you add a third option, it’s for 0 values.
