Adding values after they've been multiplied

Hello all

I'm in a bit of a pickle and desperately need any help you can offer. My appologies if I'm confusing you with this.

After multiplying values with decimals and set the column to only show or round off to only 2 decimal places (pounds and pennies), I find that the SUM or total of the values are adding the hidden decimals as well.
The total isn't the same as when I added the figures with a calculator because I leave out the extra decimals.

Is there a way of only adding the values I see in front of me and totally disregarding or removing them from the list completely.

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Hi,

Use the ROUND function in your calculations.

So if you had =SUM(A1:A100)*2 Change it to =ROUND(SUM(A1:A100)*2,2)

the ,2 at the end of the function specifies the number of decimal places to round to.

Try using a rounding formula i.e.:

=Round(A1*B1,2)

You'd be better off if you give an example what you're after. It's hard to determine whether you want to round at the multiplication stage or at the sum stage.
