currency format euro

Dec 1, 2010 at 1:19 PM


I don't manage to format a range of cells in euro format like this : 300,00 €

Besides how to format a cell in percent format like this : 19,6%


Thanks for your help

Have you tried the built-in number format masks FORMAT_CURRENCY_EUR_SIMPLE and FORMAT_PERCENTAGE_00, or using any of the number format masks that you'd use in excel itself?

Yes I tried  that


but I get this : EUR 300,00 instead of 300,00 €

Concerning precentage I get : 19.60% instead of 19,6%

How to format these cells ?

Use Excel to identify any custom format mask that you need.

Try using a format mask like:

_-[$€] #,##0.00_  *

for currency, and:


for percentage.

I have another with an excel template problem but i open a new discussion for it..

thx @flash22, for me works too , I was using a wrong one 


 and formated wrong the numbers with 6 digits and more.

EDIT: nope, this one too, doesn't work for me , with more that 4 digits. I setting up like:


setFormatCode('"€"#,##0.00'); or
