I am getting incorrect results in excel when cross-referencing formulas.
I firstly created a cell
D4 = AVERAGE(D1:D3) formatted in a percent
Now I am trying to use this percent in
D4 to multiply a number in cell
176522.5 which should give me the answer
4766.1075 however Excel is returning the value
4758.19902 which is incorrect.
I think the problem is coming from Excel using the
AVERAGE(D1:D3 instead of the actual value in the cell.
Apologies is this may seem trivial.
How can I force Excel to use the actual value and not the formula?
=ROUND(your formula , 2)
2 represents the number or decimal points you want to use. a negative number will round to the left of the decimal. set 2 to be a number that matches however many decimal points you are using. in the case of a percentage, you may need to add 2 to the number of decimal places.
