### Formatting with units

The string belonging to the value type of the cell to be changed may be used after the number. Each cell has exactly one of 5 possible value types. The owner can define a string as a unit for each of these value types.

Example:

For the value type "Price" the string "EUR" could have been defined and for the value type "Percentage" the string "%". Then the input "3EUR" would be allowed for a "Price" cell. Forbidden for the same cell would be "3€" or "3$" because these are not the specified string in each case, and "3%" is also not allowed because it is not a "percentage" cell. When you leave the cell, we format the number as specified by the owner, from this you can read the correct string.

There may be any number of spaces between the number and the string.

Example:

### Multiplying numbers using K or M

The characters **K** and **M** serve as abbreviations for **thousands** and **millions**.

<number>K or <number>k multiplies <number> with 1.000

After:

#### Multiply with million (M)
