From: Carolan on 3 Feb 2010 13:13 I have a column of figures which is the result of multiplied column A x Column B. Column B is a multiplier of .001665. The result is shown to two decimal places. When I total the results in Column B, using formula =SUM(B1:B2), it gives the result as 11.16 instead of 11.15. Can I fix this somehow so it gives the correct total? Example A Formula in B Result in B 3250.00 =A1x0.001665 5.41 3450.00 =A2x0.001665 5.74 Total 11.16

From: Eduardo on 3 Feb 2010 13:46 Hi, what happens is that you have more decimals like 5.41 really is 5.41125 and 5.74 is 5.74425 this is why you get 11.16. try using this formula =FLOOR(SUM(B6:B7),0.01) "Carolan" wrote: > I have a column of figures which is the result of multiplied column A x > Column B.

From: John on 3 Feb 2010 13:48 Your problem is that cell is rounding the data up. The result is not 5.41. Its really 5.41125. Result 2 is really 5.74425. Together your true total is 11.1555. Or rounded up to 11.16. You could use another decimal point to give you a more exact answer. "Carolan" wrote: > I have a column of figures which is the result of multiplied column A x > Column B.
