Excel applies some numeric formatting automatically, based on the entry. For example, if you precede a value
with your local currency symbol (such as a dollar sign), Excel applies Currency number formatting. If you ap-
pend a percent symbol, Excel applies Percent formatting.
Refer to Appendix B for additional information about creating custom number formats.
