    Rounding Difference CsV File

    I have a Trial Balance which I export as a CSV

    When totalling up in screen there is a small rounding difference of 0.00000004 (total of Trial Balance) (this is of no significance

    However when opening up the file the rounding difference of 0.08000004 (total of TB) , which is weird

    Can anyone enlighten me as to what would cause the total to be different to what was on screen?

    Typically these errors involve conversion of Base2 values from 15 digits to base 10 equivalents.

    A solution is to round to some significant figure value.
