Hello,

I am an estimator in a company that does installation worldwide. We are quoting in many different currencies, and now have to manually make sure I change the currency in my pricing column every time.

To make this easier, I am trying to find a way, so fill in 1 cell, and make it change the currency format in certain columns.

Another option would be to format 1 cell, and copy the layout of that cell automatically to other cells. Is this even possible ?

thx in advance.

Thank you
Hi Dielux,

You can do it both ways.

Select the columns you want to format. Hit Ctrl+1 and select the currency you want.
Select 1 cell, hit Ctrl+1 and select the currency you want. Copy that cell and select the other cell. Right-click and select "paste special" and choose format only.

Best regards,
Trowa

Not what I was looking for, what im trying to do is

put € or $ or £ or ..., in one cell, and have it automatically change the currency format in selected cells and columns.

Or, format the currency in 1 cell, and have it automatically change the currency format in selected cells and columns.

Not sure if that is even possible, but it would really come in handy

Hi Dielux,

Sorry, but I don't understand your request.

You want to format a cell and have that same format applied to selected cells and columns. But when you already selected those cell and columns, the format will also be applied to those cells.

So, for example, you want the format applied to A1 automatically be applied to B10, E5 and column G. Then Select A1, B10, E5 and column G, apply format and you are done.

Am I misunderstanding?

Best regards,
Trowa
