TRUNC Examples in VBA
TRUNC is not a member of the application.worksheetfunction. Because of this, it cannot be used the same way from within Excel VBA. Instead, we can use the FORMAT function, which will create the same result, as follows:
Executing the following VBA statements
Range("B2") = Format(Range("A2"), "##,##0.0000")
Range("B3") = Format(Range("A3"), "##,##0.000")
Range("B4") = Format(Range("A4"), "##,##0.00")
Range("B5") = Format(Range("A5"), "##,##0.00")
Range("B6") = Format(Range("A6"), "##,##0")
will produce the following results
For the function arguments (number, etc.), you can either enter them directly into the function, or define variables to use instead.
