I fully understand that. We do financial calculation up to 6 decimal
places, so can't use Currency data type.

Our real issue was the different results using the same calculation. I
thought order of precedence would apply in all cases, but couldn't fully
understand the outcomes we received. But after reading Florian and
Bernd's replies I now understand. The other issue was that our
application is 32-bit, where 64-bit would not have had this issue.
