# FIXED

Formulas / FIXED
Format numbers as text with fixed decimals.
`=FIXED(number, [decimals], [no_commas])`
• number - required
• decimals - [OPTIONAL]
• no_commas - [OPTIONAL]

## Examples

• `=FIXED(A2, 1)`

This example, rounds the number in A2 one digit to the right of the decimal point, returning 1.234.6.

• `=FIXED(A2, -1)`

The Sourcetable function FIXED can also round a given number to the left of the decimal point. For example, this rounds A2 one digit to the left of the decimal point, returning 1.23.

• `=FIXED(A3, -1, TRUE)`

The Sourcetable function FIXED can also be used with the TRUE argument to round a negative number to the left of the decimal point. For example, this rounds A3 one digit to the left of the decimal point and returns -1230.

• `=FIXED(A4)`

The Sourcetable function FIXED can also be used without the argument. This example rounds A4 two digits to the left of the decimal point, returning 44.33.

## Summary

The FIXED function rounds a number to a specified number of digits and formats it as text with commas and a period. The output is always in decimal format.

• The FIXED function is useful for formatting numbers as text and returning text rather than a number.
• The FIXED function rounds to the given number of digits and can be used to concatenate text with numbers.
• The FIXED function can be used to format numbers and retain their numeric properties.
