Re: Exporting a formula to Excel via copypaste


The two parts of the constant term will automatically combine.
InputForm uses asterisks.

-0.00488067 + 0.000981042 dff + 0.000109406 dff^2 + 1.83066*10^-8 // InputForm

-0.0048806516934 + 0.000981042*dff + 0.000109406*dff^2

My Excel (Excel for Mac 2011) accepts numbers of the form 1.83066*10^-8
