From: K. Carter on 5 May 2010 16:06 I need a formula that will breakdown an original number with two components into multiple components which then add up to the original. The example below was generated with straight original x %, which ended up generating a \$0.01 difference. I need the broken up figures to add up to the orginal to the penny. Thanks for your help! \$5,475.00 + \$273.75 = \$5,748.75 28.55% = \$1,563.11 + \$78.16 = \$1,641.27 24.42% = \$1,337.00 + \$66.85 = \$1,403.85 19.25% = \$1,053.94 + \$52.70 = \$1,106.64 13.95% = \$763.76 + \$38.19 = \$801.95 13.83% = \$757.19 + \$37.86 = \$795.05 100.00%= \$5,475.00 + \$273.76 = \$5,748.76 (\$0.01 too much) From: Niek Otten on 5 May 2010 17:17 Then you'll have to round the intermediate results or the percentage. If you format the cells to show more decimals, you'll see that they add up perfectly to the right amount. But if you use, for example, 4.76199174% to multiply with and you show only two decimals, they appear not to add up correctly. -- Kind regards, Niek Otten Microsoft MVP - Excel "K.
