The DOLLAR function in Google Sheets takes a number and converts it into a text string with the dollar sign ($) prefix. This is useful when you want to format numbers as currency in a spreadsheet. For example, if you have the value $10 in a cell, the DOLLAR function will convert it to "10.00".
The dollar syntax in Google Sheets is to use the dollar sign ($) before the number you want to format as currency. For example, to format the number 123.45 as currency with two decimal places, you would use the following syntax: =$123.45. This will cause the number to be displayed as $123.45 on the spreadsheet.
In Google Sheets, you can use the DOLLAR function to format numbers as currency. For example, if you want to display the value of your savings account as $1,234.56, you can use the following formula:
This will cause the number 1,234.56 to be displayed as $1,234.56.
There are a few occasions when you should not use DOLLAR in Google Sheets. One is when you are trying to input a number that includes a decimal point. In that case, you should use the DECIMAL function instead. Another time you should not use DOLLAR is when you are trying to input a text string that includes a currency symbol. In that case, you should use the TEXT function instead.
In Google Sheets, the DOLLAR function is used to calculate the monetary value of a given number. The function takes into account the current currency exchange rates, so that the output value is accurate and up-to-date. There are a few similar formulae to DOLLAR that can be used in Google Sheets. The CURRENCY function converts a given number into the corresponding currency value. The VAR function calculates the variance between two numbers. And the RANK function sorts a list of numbers in ascending or descending order.
