    Hi there,

    I tested PowerPivot with really big numbers and have a look - it simply shrinks the precision of my data without any notification or warning.

     

    Well guys - there are cases out there which will need to analyse big values...

    Any ideas - comments on this?

    Additional Info

    Even more confusing is that the table preview shows the data correct (!):

    The values are converted into the precision of a decimal type (R8 internally) and displayed as scientific value (e.g. 123...E+27).

    But no comment on the loose of precision!
