Thank you for joining us today. I’m Rudy Stebih and welcome to Episode 2 – Inputting
And Formatting Numbers in Excel 2010 here on Help Desk TV.
The initial steps for inputting numbers to cells are the same as for text. You simply
select the cell and begin typing the numbers. With the Ribbon’s Home tab selected, type
a heading for a column of numbers. Then type a series of numbers into the cells beneath
the heading. Now drag through the cells to select them
and click the ‘$’ in the Number group. The dollar sign and two decimal places are
applied by default. You can click the ‘Decrease Decimal’ button
twice to remove the decimals. If you need to use other currencies for your
data, you can click the drop-down arrow beside the ‘$’ button to display other number
formats. I hope you enjoyed todays Help Desk TV. If
