Good afternoon,

I have a file that contains a journal entry that when formatted as a number correctly sums to 0, however, when saving as a CSV and trying to import into our accounting system it tells me the entry is out of balance. When I open the CSV file I get the sum of -1.93268E-12 which is why it is not importing. How do I eliminate this? I have tried copying to a new sheet, PS-Values, formatting, etc.

Thank you!
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Didn't work but thank you for the input!
If it didn't work, why did you mark it as the solution?

It should work. If it doesn't, then you may not have applied it correctly.
Please let me know the exact steps you did, and I will see if I can identify where the issue is.
