I have searched relentlessly for help on this problem to no avail. My decimal points are set correctly, my column is wide enough, yet no matter what I do, the cell marked in red multiplies the answer to the nearest dollar instead of showing the cents correctly. I do know that it may be in part that the "Rate" (C21) is the result of another formula which is somehow affecting it. If I create the formula without the preceding formula, the cents show up not rounded to the dollar. I have spent hours and days trying to figure this out.
The issue lies in the rate in cell C21. Essentially you are taking $520 divided by 39 which actually gives an answer of 13.333... Then you multiply 13.333... again by 39 which gives you back your original $520.
You should use the following formula in cell C21 if you desire $519.87 as a result in cell D21:
