    decimal places-optional cell formatting

    Is it possible to format cells as 'show me the decimal places, but only if they're there'? That way $2.00 is $2 but $2.34 is $2.34.

    I would use

    =if(A1=(last 2 digits are zeros),A1 but without the zeros,A2)

    But how do I set this up?

    Halfway there. What about keeping the comma separators, and either both or neither decimal places? So what's now $1200.5 becomes $1,200.50?
