Automatic Rounding of numbers

Occasional Visitor

When I add cells together and there is a decimal point, Excel automatically rounds the number up or down. For example (45.5% + 37.2%) is displayed as 82.6%.  I would like to display it as 82.7%


How do I fix this?

In fact, Excel doesn't automatically round the number up or down, but it takes into account the hidden decimals places that are invisible by default.


You can detect these hidden decimals by using the increase and decrease decimal buttons in the Home tab.


Here's is an example:

Hope that makes sense
