The NUMBERVALUE function is one of the text and data functions. Is used to convert text to a number, in a locale-independent way. If the converted text is not a number, the function will return a #VALUE! error.
The NUMBERVALUE function syntax is:
NUMBERVALUE(text [, [decimal-separator] [, [group-separator]])
text is text data that represents a number.
decimal-separator is the character used to separate the integer and fractional part of the result. It is an optional argument. If it is omitted, the current locale is used.
group-separator is the character used to separate groupings of numbers, such as thousands from hundreds and millions from thousands. It is an optional argument. If it is omitted, the current locale is used.
The values can be entered manually or included into the cell you make reference to.
To apply the NUMBERVALUE function,
- select the cell where you wish to display the result,
- click the Insert Function icon situated at the top toolbar,
or right-click within a selected cell and select the Insert Function option from the menu,
or click the icon situated at the formula bar,
- select the Text and data function group from the list,
- click the NUMBERVALUE function,
- enter the required arguments separating them by commas,
