I think the formula you want is "TEXT".
I'm not too sure on the format parameter to this function, haven't
checked that, but for me a format string of "#.##" worked fine for a
number with a decimal place. You should be able to find further details
of the format string in the help or online.
So, for example, I put the number "1234.5" in cell A1, then in cell B1
I put the formula '=TEXT(A1,"#.##")', and now cell B1 holds the text
I hope this is what you were looking for.
