XL, by default, is returning rounded whole numbers, my column is set to "numbers." and decimal places to "7;" I need accuracy, how do I change this?

Does the column contain formulas? If so, what do they look like?

@Hans Vogelaar In E1 =QUOTIENT(C1,D1) w/coloumn set to number and 7 places

C=40    D=13   E= 3.0000000

Also, a relatively new computer with default setting in XL
set all three columns to number with 7 places, still the same result.

Thanks! The QUOTIENT function performs integer division, i.e. its result will always be a whole number. Use the / operator instead:

 

=C1/D1

OK Hans, that works, thanks so much, have a great day.
