Using the Excel DOLLARDE Function


The Excel DOLLARDE function returns a dollar price expressed as a decimal number when provided a dollar price expressed as an integer part and fraction part, such as 2.05.

The fraction portion of the value is divided by the specified integer. For example, if you would like a price to be expressed to a precision of 1/8 of a dollar, divide the fraction part by 8. Using 2.05, you would perform the following:

($2 + (2 / 8)) = $2.25.
