Excel automatically rounding to 6 decimal places

Hi there, I am trying to us a SUMIFS to sum a range of numbers based upon a reference. The reference I am using has 12 decimal places (stored as text), i.e.:

120577342.663008205083

When Excel uses the reference it seems to automatically round it up to 6 decimal places i.e.:

120577342.663008000000

Now I have other references that are similar to the first reference and it's lumping it all together instead of using the reference as a finite number. So it's Summing these all together

120577342.663008208006
120577342.663008207865
120577342.663008205083

As it's rounding each to:

120577342.663008000000

Is there a way in the SUMIFS to get it to search for the finite 12 decimal point number?

I've tried to ROUND to 12 decimal places, that doesn't work. I've tried to convert it to a number but once again it rounds to 6 decimal points. I've tried, under Advanced Settings, to set the precision as displayed but that hasn't helped either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi HoustonSpurs,
Have you tried separating the two parts of the string, around the "." and then treating them separately as text. If the 2nd part (right of the ".") is more significant then maybe that is way to go!

Hope this helps.

Thanks Wassim, that might be a way forward, unfortunately not all the data is formatted in this method (i.e. the 12 decimal places) but I'll have a go at breaking it down and seeing if that works :)
