I have a situation where I need to add cells together whose results have been calculated using the roundown function. For example: 6.8 gets roundown to 6 and 5.3 gets roundown to 5. When I add them together I want to get 11, but I'm getting 12. Any ideas? Certainly would appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks

Instead of using the rounddown, use the int() function if you do not want any decimals in it. This works as you want it.
