Didn’t know it did that

If you like fractions then Excel can deal with these – no problem.

To write one third you’d enter

0 1/3

The space after the zero is important.  Two and three quarters would be:

2 3/4

It’s brilliant.  It’s fine to use these in formula and results are more accurate than the approximate decimal equivalent.
