Dear Michael, I have to apologise for providing the wrong example. It
should have been 2024.28*.146(I was distracted while writing, and
forgot to check!!)

 Unfortunately, ths list reformats text, so headings will not
directly match with 
the columns.

Using the values in message gave in message the result is 299.04888
shown, and the 3 digit of 8 causes it to round the 4 up to a 5, which

Num 1    Num 2    Num 1 * Num 2 Rounded

2048.28  0.146    299.04888299.05

Here I recalculated the 2nd number to get the result you 
show instead of the 0.146 value. Again Rounding is 

Num 1    Num 2 Calc    Your Value??  Rounded

2048.28  0.144291210186107  295.5488 295.55

Same as above, but recalculated the 1st number??

Num 1 Calc    Num 2    Your Value??  Rounded

2024.30684931507   0.146    295.5488 295.55

I'm running LO on OpenSuse and I wonder if anyone alse can confirm

error on calc.

Multiplying 2048.28*.146 yields correctly 295.54488, but when

down to 2 decimal places, 295.55 is displayed (instead of

295.54)(either using ROUND(2048.28*.146,2) or with field format.
