Here is a quick formula tip to start another awesome week.
Often while working with data, I need to split a number in to integer and decimal portions. Now, there are probably a ton of ways you can do this. But here are two formulas I use quite often and they work well.
Assuming the number is in cell A1,
- Integer part =INT(A1)
- Decimal part =MOD(A1,1)
These formulas work whenever my data has only positive numbers (which is the case 90% 0f time). But if I am dealing with a mix of positive and negative numbers, I use,
- Integer part
- Decimal part =MOD(A1,SIGN(A1))
What formulas do you use to process numbers?
What about you? What formulas do you use and how do you process your numbers? Please share using comments.
