    Syntax for formatting a number with a comma for thousands

    I'm using this code to add a column total, what do I need to add to centre the number in the cell and to format it using a comma for thousands?

    If you record it with the macro recorder you will get the code.
    Notice my main language is not English.

    I appreciate it, if you reply on my solution.

    Re: Syntax for formatting a number with a comma for thousands

    Hi oeldere,

    Okay, I now have this, which works, but is there a more 'efficient' way to write this, with fewer lines of code or is this the best way? I basically want the last row only to be formatted as bold and with the numeric value in column D to include the comma for thousands and be centred, but the word 'Total' in column C to be left ranged.

    Many thanks

    Probably there is, but I don't have the solution for that.

    But fewer lines are not always a better code.

    A code you can understand is more usefull, than a code, which is shorter, but is magic for you.

    You can use With blocks but it's not more efficient
