... which also displays the correct answer of 65535 (corrected per input from Pavneet)
My computer at work is equipped with MS XP Professional, MS Office 2003, and MS Internet Explorer v6. Now, based upon some of my own impressions of MS Internet Explorer v7 and MS Vista (which seem to be widely shared, if internet forums are any indication) -- and now this finding with MS Excel 2007, I don't want any "upgrades".
BTW, you may find it quite difficult to restore MS IE v6 after installing MS IE v7. Apparently, in order to make good on the claim that IE was an integral part of the OS during the browser-war litigation of a few years ago, MS really *did* interlock the code in some fashion.
I wonder if MS Excel 2007 can correctly calculate 100.00-99.99-0.01? The older versions couldn't...
Anyway, I prefer HP calculators and programs over spreadsheet software for calculations using small amounts of input data.
