Use this formula in f18

=ROUND(IF(D18="","",D18/$D$12+0.001),3)

and this in k18

=ROUND(IF(I18="","",I18/$D$12+0.001),3)

Hi, I think the problem is due to the following:

For example:

G18 = IF(D18="","",F18*$D$12)
F18 = IF(D18="","",D18/$D$12+0.001)
D18 = 0.82

So
F18 = 0.82/241 + 0.001
G18 = (0.82/241+0.001)*241 = 0.82 + 0.241 = 1.061

The same applies for K18 and L18.

Therefore, if you would like to make G18 to be 0.964, one way is to use:

G18=IF(D18="","",ROUND(F18,3)*$D$12)

Same to be applied to L18:
L18=IF(I18="","",ROUND(K18,3)*$D$12)

Change the first set of formulas I gave you to

=IF(D18="","",ROUND(D18/$D$12+0.001,3))

and

=IF(I18="","",ROUND(I18/$D$12+0.001,3))
