    Very basic problem.

    Pl have a look on attachment. Instead of adding numbers (decreased upto 2 decimal) one by one , is there a simple formula?

    You can use the following array formula. You must confirm it with Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of just Enter:

    =SUM(ROUND(A1:A7,2))

    You will see

    {=SUM(ROUND(A1:A7,2))}

    in the formula bar. The { } indicate that it is an array formula. Excel adds them when you confirm a formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter, you should not type the { } yourself.

    Excellent, Thanks Hans. How do I describe an array formula?

    "An array formula is a formula that works with an array, or series, of data values rather than a single data value."
