Do I need to enter dollar signs,
commas, or trailing zeros for the
quarterly sales numbers?
You are not required to type dollar
signs, commas, or trailing zeros.
When you enter a dollar value that
has cents, however, you must add
the decimal point and the numbers
representing the cents. Later in this
chapter, the numbers will be for-
matted to use dollar signs, commas,
and trailing zeros to improve the appearance and readability of the numbers.
