instead of
Middle ( Nbr - Int ( Nbr ) & Substitute ( ( 10 ^ p ) - 1; 9; 0 ); 2; p ) )

Thank you, very useful.

For myself I needed it to use the existing precision of the number (when I pass "" as the precision param). I think that is what David (first comment) also required.

Just add this line below p = DecimalPrecision ;
p = If ( IsEmpty ( p ) and n ≠ Int ( n ) ; Length ( Abs ( n ) - Int ( n ) ) - If ( n < 0 ; 2 ; 1 ) ; p ) ;
