My HP 30b shows same results like my HP 50g and they are the same like your HP 48G and HP 12c shows. Maybe there is a slight amount in the FV store place after an calculation, so try to input a zero in FV before you perform the comparing calculations. Sincerely peacecalc ▼ bill platt Unregistered Posts: 2,448 Threads: 90 Joined: Jul 2005 03-26-2012, 11:21 AM THANKS! Now I feel compltely STUPID! There was "12" in the FV register. D'oh!
