I have some numbers i need to include in a string.

These numbers needs to be rounded down to two decimals, which I use ROUND() to do, my problem comes if the number has trailing zero's fx:

  • 233.50 becomes 233.5
  • 233.00 becomes 233

Does anyone know how can keep the trailing zeros?

It looks easy, but it was a bit of a challenge.

ROUNDDOWN({Number}, 0) &
"." &
IF(
  FIND(".",ROUND({Number}, 2)&""),
  REGEX_EXTRACT(
    ROUND({Number}, 2)&"0",
    "\\.(\\d{1,2})"
  ),
  "00"
)
  

There has been a number field update recently, and it would be nice if formatted numbers could be used in Formulas as well.

Hi @Kim_Trager1 

You should be able to resolve this issue by specifying the precision on your formula field in the formatting tab when you edit a field. If your formula field is a number you should get a result like this where you can specify the decimal places you would like to be visible.

Thank you for this, however the number is part of a longer text. Like: "blablablabla £250.00 blablabla"

So it's how do I get the 250.00 to be "blablablabla £250.00 blablabla" instead of "blablablabla £250 blablabla"?

This is beautiful, thank you so much. It was not as easy as I thought it would have been.
