I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "the full amount/value"? Are
you able to give an example of what you're entering in Find, and the
values in some cells in your sheet which you'd expect that to find?
A more concrete example showing what I was trying to describe... If you
have a sheet displaying the following values:
The actual values of the cells are:
(they're just displayed with two decimal places because of the
formatting applied to the cells)
If you search for "9876.54", it finds the cell containing 9876.54; so
far so good.
If you search for "9876.5", it finds the cell containing 9876.5, and
also the cell containing 9876.54; also fine, but probably not very
helpful in your case.
If you search for "9876.50", it DOES NOT find anything - which is
probably not what you'd expect (I'd have expected it to find that cell
To find cells displaying "9876.50" but not other values (such as
9876.54), it seems you need to use the Find & Replace dialog, search for
"9876.5", and select the "Entire cells" option. This may present other
problems, for example it wouldn't find a value 9876.501, even though
that would be displayed as "9876.50".
What I’m entering in Find is the full amount/value. The amount of 1234.12 is just to show the
format I am using

Thanks Tom for your quick response and suggestion - and also all others who have contributed.
Downloaded the Still version 4.2.8 but same thing is happening. Worked 1st time I entered a value
and then when I changed the amount "Search key not found". I entered different amounts from
different cells to test and it can find some values but not others???
They are all formatted as numbers e.g.: 1234.12. No formulas in cells.
These are bank statements downloaded as .cvs files then changed to .ods files in Libra to check
Briefly experimenting with this, it seems that if there is a value of 1234.1 in a cell, it is found
when searching for 1234.1 but not when searching for 1234.10 - even if it is formatted to display
two decimal places. Could that be what you're seeing?
Additionally, a cell containing 1234.12 is found by a search for either 1234.12 or 1234.1, which makes it more difficult
to find 1234.10 but not 1234.12. It is possible though, by using Edit > Find and Replace, entering "1234.1"
as the search term, and selecting the "Entire cells" option; that will then find a cell containing 1234.1 but
This does seem potentially confusing. If this is the problem you're seeing, it may be worth filing an
enhancement request athttps://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/bug/. After filling in the details but before
submitting, check the list of "Related bug reports". If any of those describe the same problem,
it's better to add information there instead of submitting a new report.
