I want to see big numbers in same power of scientific notation in microsoft excel

for example, I want to see these numbers in excel cells

```1.23E+7          1.45E+10          1.36E+12
```

as below:

```1.23E+7        1453.11E+7      136445.11E+7

To my knowledge you cannot fix the power using the default formatting (though I'm happy to learn I'm wrong). What you can do instead: use a formula next to it to convert it to your format:

```=TEXT(INT(A1/10^5)/10^2;"0.00")&"E+7"
```

in my case, with greek international settings i.e. comma for decimal separator, this was the only thing that worked : =TEXT(A1*10^7;"0,00") & "E+7" – hello_earth Jan 30 at 15:42

No, not in Excel and still retaining it as a numeric value. But, if you are willing to accept "E+n" where n is a multiple of 3 you can use custom number formats such as:

```#,##0.00,"E+3"
#,##0.00,,"E+6"
#,##0.00,,,"E+9"
```

Each comma appearing after the decimal point shows the output divided by 1000. Using custom number formats has the advantage of keeping the real numeric values unmodified and suitable for further calculations.
