The only built-in formula that comes to my mind is REST(Dividend;Divisor) in German. In English this should be MOD(Dividend;Divisor). But it still has the Problem with the sign of the Dividend. For example: The number in Cell B2 is 4.3459234, your formula should be =MOD(B2;1) The number in B2 is 4.3459234, then the formula should be =MOD(B2;-1) To overcome this you could use the built-in formula VORZEICHEN(), in English SIGN(). In the example: =MOD(B2;SIGN(B2) Not really an improvement, just another way. Maybe it helps you anyway.
