ifmt

stFormat (variable)

...

ifmt (2 bytes):  An IFmt structure that specifies the identifier of the format string specified by stFormat. The value of ifmt.ifmt SHOULD<91> be a value within one of the following ranges. The value of ifmt.ifmt MUST be a value within one of the following ranges or within 383 to 392.

  • 5 to 8

  • 23 to 26

  • 41 to 44

  • 63 to 66

  • 164 to 382

stFormat (variable):  An XLUnicodeString structure that specifies the format string for this number format. The format string indicates how to format the numeric value of the cell. The length of this field MUST be greater than or equal to 1 character and less than or equal to 255 characters. For more information about how format strings are interpreted, see [ECMA-376] Part 4: Markup Language Reference, section 3.8.31.

For a string to be considered a valid format string, it MUST be well-formed according to the following ABNF specification.

ABNF Grammar for number format strings

These definitions are for en-US locale. International consideration as specified in [ECMA-376] Part 4: Markup Language Reference, section 3.8.31 MUST be accounted for and the ABNF MUST be modified accordingly for specific international number formats.

The following rules are not expressed in the ABNF grammar, but apply to the grammar:

  1. In the following ABNF specification, the following tokens in the first table that follows can occur 0 or more times anywhere in the grammar, as long as they do not break apart the elements in the second table that follows:

    Token

    LITERAL-STRING

    LITERAL-CHAR-REPEAT

    LITERAL-CHAR-SPACE

    Elements

    INTL*

    LITERAL*

    NFDateTimeToken

    NFPartExponential

    NFPartCond

    NFPartLocaleID

    NFPartColor

    NFPartIntNum

    NFPartStrColor

    Elements

    INTL*

    LITERAL*

    NFDateTimeToken

    NFPartExponential

    NFPartCond

    NFPartLocaleID

    NFPartColor

    NFPartIntNum

    NFPartStrColor

  2. The following token MUST occur 0 or 1 times in each section as defined in [ECMA-376] Part 4: Markup Language Reference, section 3.8.31.

NFPartLocaleID

NFAbsTimeToken MUST occur 0 or 1 times in NFDateTime. 

An absolute time token, such as NFPartAbsHour, MUST not coexist with a non-absolute equivalent token, such as NFPartHour, in NFDateTime.

Following is the ABNF grammar for number format strings.
