Converts a provided number to a dollar value.

Sample Usage





  • value - The argument or reference to a cell to be converted to a dollar value.

    • If value is not a number or a reference to a cell containing a numeric value, TO_DOLLARS returns value without modification.


  • Because dates and percentages are backed by numbers, TO_DOLLARS will convert them successfully. However, these conversions are not typically meaningful.

  • TO_DOLLARS is equivalent to applying Format -> Number -> Currency from the menu bar.

  • TO_DOLLARS differs from the related function DOLLAR in that DOLLAR outputs text rather than applying a cell format to a number.

  • TO_DOLLARS does not convert from other currencies into US Dollars. Please use the GoogleFinance function to convert currencies at current exchange rates.
