    Rounding Access to Excel (2003 SP2)

    I have a percentage field in an Access table which is set to 2 decimal places. I have the table linked to Excel, and when I update the table in Excel, instead of, for example, a value of 6.00%, I get a value of 5.99999986588954%.
    Of course I can format this to display two decimal places, however how can I just import the percentages to two decimal places?
    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Rounding Access to Excel (2003 SP2)

    Set the field size of the field in Access to Double instead of Single.
    If that doesn't help, create a query in Access with a calculated column

    RoundedValue: Round([FieldName],4)

    where FieldName is the name of your percentage field. Link to the query in Excel instead of to the table.

    Note: rounding to 4 decimal places produces percentage values with 2 decimal places.
