## How to Convert Number to Text with Commas in Excel: 3 Easy Methods

### 1. Using FIXED Function to Convert Numbers to Text with Commas

One easy way to convert numbers to text in Excel is using **the FIXED function.** Let’s get to the process.

**Steps:**

- First, type the following formula in cell
**C5**.

`=FIXED(B5,0)`

Here, **the FIXED function** takes the number from cell **B5 **and converts it into a **text **with **commas**. It also puts **decimals **after a number by default. As we don’t want **decimals**, we put a **0 **(zero) into our formula.

- Now press the
**ENTER**button. You will see the number in cell**B5**converted to a**text**with**commas**.

- Now use the
**Fill Handle**to Auto-fill the formula to lower cells.

- Now to understand that these
**numbers**are converted to**text**, select the cells**B5**to**B11**and you will see a message at the bottom of your Excel sheet which will show you the**average**,**count**and**sum**of the data you selected.

- But, if you select the cells
**C5**to**C11**, you will see only the**count**of these data in that message. This implies that these data are converted to**text**.

This way, you can convert **numbers **to **text **with **commas**.

### 2. Applying TEXT Function to Convert Numbers to Text with Commas

Another valuable and easy-to-use function to convert **numbers **to **text **with **commas **is **the TEXT function**. It’s execution is pretty simple.

**Steps:**

- First, write the following formula in cell
**C5**.

`=TEXT(B5,"#,#")`

Here, **the TEXT function** converts the number into **text **format, but it would not put the **commas **in **numbers **if we didn’t use the **“#,#” **argument in the formula.

- Now hit the
**ENTER**button to see the output in cell**C5**.

- Use the
**Fill Handle**to**AutoFill**the lower cells.

By following this approach, you can convert **numbers **to **text **with **commas **within a moment.
