Hi,
I am writing a large matrix to excel and I try to change the number of decimals it is writing to excel.
I use the WRITEEXCEL function.
Is is possible to change the number of decimals before writing to excel?
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
As for the poster's original question, you still need to round/truncate the "extra" decimal points using a formula. However, this is a simple formula of =ROUND(,) that is not extremely computationally expensive Prepaid Card Status.
Hi,
Yes it is possible to use the "round()" function on a matrix of numbers before the writing to excel.
With no round statement.
With the round function.
Cheers

Hello terryhendicott,
Thanks a lot for your help. So in order to round a large matrix, I have to use some for loops to go through that matrix.
Looking at your example I still see that 15 decimals are exported to excel... A solution for this is to set the cell format in excel to 2 decimals for example, but then I have to perform this action every time I have exported data from Mathcad.
Is is possible to only send two decimal values to excel?
Hi,

Yes the round function can be applied to a vector all at once so you loop through the columns of the matrix.

It does only send two decimals to excel. I formatted excel to show 15 decimal places.
This is how excel shows without formatting straight after transfer.

Why not vectorize?
Success!

There should be no need to use the ROUND function within excel. You can just set the number of displayed decimals in the number formatting section of excel:

Hi Luc,
Thanks for you answer.
That method doesn't work, since Mathcad is overwriting the cell format in excel.
The round function does work:)
