Converting 2-place decimal value to floating point decimal number with leading zero

Converting 2-place decimal value to floating point decimal number with leading zero

Hello,

I thought this would be simple, but, what I'm trying to do is take a
column of numbers like this:
7.25
7.00
8.25
7.75

and convert them to this:
0.0725
0.0700
0.0825
0.0775

I am using Excel 2000 and have gone through all the format options but
can't find anything that will do the trick. If someone could show me
how to do this it would ge greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
KP

7.25/100=.0725
do this in another column and delete the earlier column

Hi!

Try this:

This will convert then in-place.

In an empty cell enter 100.

Now select that cell and do Edit>Copy.

Select the range of cells you want converted.

Then Edit>Paste Special>Divide>OK
