When I sum a column of numeric data that is calculated (Row B - row A) I get a different answer than if I enter the values individually without the calculation.
A B Calculated Entered

The time data is numberic. formula for Hours is =B2-A2

Same problem occurs when summing other calculated fields.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

The calculations in column C are being rounded, if you expand the format to show 2 decimals you will see the differences.

Not that a difference of 0.1 is much to worry about when your decimal times are already creating much bigger error margins.

Ignoring the row that just shows 18.9 as it doesn't seem to relate to anything else, B2-A2 equates to 27.25, (or rounded as your current format 27.3), entered manually this would result as 27.4 due to excessive rounding before totalling.

In real time the actual total should be 26:45 or 26.75 hours, an error anything from 0.5 to 0.65 hours depending on which total you look at.

Hi,

This is caused by the rounding.

For example:
C2 in fact is not 0.3, it is 0.28.
C3 is not 2.5, it is 2.49
C4 is not 0.9, it is 0.86
and so on

The correct total is neither 46.2 nor 46.3 it is 46.15
