Converts a number into text according to a given format.


TEXT(number; format)

returns number converted to text, according to the format code specified by format.
Example format codes are found in the Format - Cells... dialogue, in the box labelled Format Code. These depend on your locale.
This function should therefore not be regarded as portable.



returns the text 12.35, if in your locale ###.## is a format code meaning "up to three integer digits and at most two decimal digits".
