It is a different value. 14860.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:48
How did you achieve 1486 only?
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:49
when you add comma, it is treated as text.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:49
I have converted them to 1.48 instead.
User 28/05/2018 - 06:50
if i have three or more then its wrong
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:50
And there is a format, where comma can be added in thousand place.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:50
that is not treated as text.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:51
It is consider as number.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:51
So, please check whether it is comma used as text or number format. Mostly it is number format, as you are multiplying with another number.

why is it correct when using 1,4 & 1,48 bur wrong when using 1,486
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:53
1,48 can't be there.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:53
As comma is used in thousand place.
Excelchat Expert 28/05/2018 - 06:53
1.48 is dot.
