A bug in Excel…

Beware if you’re using Excel for certain calculations. The 2007 version of the software has a bug in it. If you have a copy try asking it to calculate 77.1 times 850.

Here’s a clue – the answer should be 65,535

But in Excel 2007 it’s 10,000!

The explanation is rather convoluted and I for one don’t understand it. The team blog for Excel tries to explain it… As does Joel in Software

Let’s hope nobody’s cash flow projections or drug dose calculations depended on that…
