Business Plan Pro tip: Calculation Rounding

roundingSome calculations in Business Plan Pro may produce results that appear to be incorrect by very small amounts. This apparent discrepancy occurs when the software rounds numbers up or down to fit the cell formatting (decimals) chosen for each cell. In some cases, this can even trigger a Plan Review warning for a table that appears to be fine.

In Business Plan Software 11.0, you can prevent rounding from affecting your printed plan by using the Precision as Displayed option. This option forces the value of each number in the worksheet to match the displayed value. To turn on this option, follow these steps:

  1. (Recommended) Save a copy of your plan with a different name
  2. On the Tools menu, point to Options and click Tables
  3. On the General tab, check the box for Precision as displayed
  4. Click OK to apply this setting to all tables in your plan

NOTE: This setting permanently changes the values in your tables to match the decimal settings in your table cells.
