In your case the sum calculation is based on the actual multiplication result in the individual cells to a large number of decimal places, and then the displayed sum shortened to show the decimal places set by the formatting preference. The (sum of the original entries) multiplied by (1,22) displayed to two decimal places is not likely to display exactly the same as the sum of (individual entries) multiplied by (the same multiplier).That pretty well SUMs it up. ;-)

SettingsGo to tools, options, calc, calculate, and check the box "Precision as Shown"
