Description gfrezou 2003-08-12 10:34:42 UTC
Hi ! I'm running OOo 1.1rc2 on linux mandrake 9.1, kernel 2.4.21-016mm-mdk. 

When I substract the integer part of a number from the original number to get
the decimal part, I also get some garbage numbers around the 15th decimal. Have
a look at the cell B3 of the attached file.

Hi Eike,

please have a look at this one.

Comment 3 ooo 2003-09-08 14:14:17 UTC
We only claim to calculate correctly up to 12 decimals ;-)  However,
as this looks nasty we might try to improve on some cases.
Comment 4 ooo 2003-09-29 11:36:32 UTC
Developer notes: later.
2.0 only if time permits.
