I am importing currency from Google finance to Google spreadsheets (latest version). The number that is imported is rounded both in terms of what is displayed and the underlying number. Is there a way to get the actual underlying currency number to all necessary decimal places?

Look at your menu bar and select:

Format > Number > More Formats > Custom Number Format

I used the external lookup - =ImportHTML("http://www.xe.com","table", 1)

in a unused part of the spreadsheet and then sourced the appropriate rate from the table contents. Will probably work with other currencies too - look at xe.com Updates every minute which is fine for my purposes.



  • ASX (Australian Stock eXchange) can be replaced for TSE, etc or removed for NASDAQ
  • B12 is the Ticker.
  • please add the appropriate code formatting so other people can more easily read it Jul 2, 2019 at 9:46
