We can put a validation in the Excel cells for Decimal Number in the same way we did it for Whole Number.

### Below are the steps to apply data validation for decimal number:

- Select the range.
- Go to Data tab>>Data Validation>>Click on Data Validation.

- Below given window will be opened.
- Select
*Decimal*in*Allow*drop down. - Select between in
*Data*drop down and put*Minimum*and*Maximum*value. - Click on
*OK*button.

As we have given the minimum 3.00 and maximum 3.99 in the criteria. So decimal numbers between 3.00 to 3.99 will be allowed to enter. if any other value will be entered it will show “*The value you entered is not valid*”

### In *Data* Drop down below given items are available:

**between**: is used to allow the**decimal number**between given*minimum*and*maximum*criteria.**not between**: is used to not allow the**decimal****number**between given*minimum*and*maximum*criteria.**equal to**: is used to allow only one**decimal****number**which has been enter given in criteria.**not equal to**: is used to not allow only one**decimal****number**which has been given in criteria.**greater than**: is used to allow all the**decimal****numbers**which are greater than the number which has been given in criteria.**less than**: is used to allow all the**decimal****numbers**which are less than the number which has been given in criteria.**greater than or equal to**: is used to allow all the**decimal****numbers**which are greater or equal to the number which has been given in criteria.**less than or equal to**: is used to allow all the**decimal****numbers**which are less than or equal to the number which has been given in criteria.
