    How do I format numbers to put a comma after every 4 digits

    I need to list 4 digit numbers in each section followed by commas, but whatever i do it goes to 3digits (eg. I need "1234,5678,9123" and as soon as I hit Enter it goes to "123,456,789,123"). It wont help to format as text because I have a whole bunch of 12 digit numbers to break up into 4.

    Hi
    Not sure if this will help but if you format your number in cell A1 to text initially. Then in B1 use this formula it will display as you are asking:

    =MID(A1,1,4)&","&MID(A1,5,4)&","&MID(A1,9,4)

    Once you have done that you can copy column B and choose paste value in the same column which will display as you want.
    Good luck.

    Hi
    Format cell A1 as text.
    Enter a 12 digit number in A1.
    Put the formula in cell B1.
    The number is now displayed in your requested format.

    Format as #\,####\,####

    It's not perfect:

    A
    1
    1234,5678,9123
    2
    123,4567,8912
    3
    12,3456,7891
    4
    1,2345,6789
    5
    ,1234,5678
    6
    ,123,4567
    7
    ,12,3456
    8
    ,1,2345
    9
    ,,1234
    10
    ,,123
    11
    ,,12
    12
    ,,1

    If they are always 12-digit numbers then you can use this in B1:

    =LEFT(A1,4)&","&MID(A1,5,4)&","&RIGHT(A1,4)

    and copy down.

    Hope this helps.
