Im reading a value (0.8448) from sheet 2, assigning it to a variable called accountPerBase which is type currency. I then try to write that value back in sheet 1 via the following command

ActiveCell.Value = accountPerBase

but its only displaying 0.8400. When im debugging though, when i hover over the accountPerBase variable, its displaying 0.8448.

Ive changed the format of the cells to currency and 4 decimal places.

Any ideas as to why its truncating my number?

Thanks

I guess it has to do with setting the accountPerBase type as currency. Why is this required? I would just keep it as double.
