Folks,
I have a calculated value of .5226789654. However, I only need to check .5226 and my feeble attempts below are failing:

Dim Gender As Double
Gender = 0.5226
Range("E4").Select
Selection.NumberFormat = ".####"
If Range("E4").Value <> Gender Then
    MsgBox "Male % between 0-4 is wrong!", vbExclamation, "Wrong Percentage!"
    Worksheets("2DBarClustered").Range("E4").ClearContents
     Range("E4").Select
     Exit Sub
 End If
