I use Excel in Office 365. When I enter a calculation in a cell, the cell being formatted at %, Excel automatically expands the numebr decimals and widens the column width. How can I stop this? I notices when I look into number formats, custom formats there is a custom % format with over 10 decimals. I deleted this custom format. The I entered the same calculation and again Excel expands the decimals and widens the column. When I check custom number formats, Excel has added back the % format with over 10 decimals. How can I stop Excel from adding decimals and widening the column?

I am trying to create a custom number format that applies M for millions and K for thousands, and that also varies the number of decimal places as the numbers get bigger. This is where I am at at the moment [>=1000000]#.00,"M";[>=100000]#,"K";[>=1000]#.0,"K; but this format doesnt seem to process. Here are some example numbers of the format I am going for (zero to be invisible) 3 36 365 3.65K 36.5K 365K 3.65M 36.5M Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
