Entering Data as Thousands in Excel

When working with large numbers in Microsoft Excel, it is often useful to format the cells so that the thousands separator appears automatically. This can be done by selecting the cells you want to format and then choosing the "Format Cells" option from the Home tab. In the "Number" tab, select "Number" from the Category list and then check the box next to "Use 1000 Separator (,)".

You can also enter data in Excel as thousands by using the following steps:

  1. Type the number you want to format in a cell.
  2. Click on the cell, then click on the Home tab.
  3. Click on the Number group, then click on the Decrease Decimal button twice.
  4. Your number should now be formatted as thousands.
