Hi Brian

I agree, there has got to be a way but I can’t find it.  When positioned on one of the cells in question and I press Control+1 to open the format Cells dialog, it opens in the number tab with

Format option in the list: -1234.57, Language: English UK, Decimal places: 2, Negative numbers red unchecked, Leading zeroes: 1, Thousands separator unchecked and Format Code: 0.00.


I’ve messed around with it in the past but gave up on it.

I do that but it displays 123.40 as 123.4. 

No snark intended, but "do what?"   I haven't dealt with Calc in a while, but I seem to recall that choosing any of the pre-defined formats with 2 decimal places always showed both.  I also can't imagine, though you can confirm/refute, that setting the Decimal field to two does not always keep two digits after the decimal point showing.  There has got to be a way to do this, as it's a constant need to present data with a fixed number of decimal places.

If you think that you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to something else, without thinking of the thing it is attached to, then you have a legal mind.
