Getting 01 to display

This might seem trivial...but does anyone know how to get 01 to diplay in the cell when the cell is formated as a Number?

RE: Getting 01 to display

One way is to use a custom format


The single digit numbers 1 through 9 will display with leading 0.

This way, the cell is still a numerical value - so it can be used in calculations.


RE: Getting 01 to display

Set a custom format of 00.### and it will always display two number with up to 3 decimal places. The 0 dictates the value will be shown and # dictates the number will be shown if it exists.
