    Different summation result in different tableau version

    Abhishek Gupta

      While working on a data set for a client I noticed that the summation of a measure is different in excel and tableau at 3rd- 4th decimal place. Then I tried summing up the measure in different versions of Tableau's (10.2 & 10.5) and to my surprise the summations were different in both the versions of tableau.

       

      Summation in excel             : 26556644.8670000000000

      Summation in Tableau 10.2 : 26556644.8669999910000

      Summation in Tableau 10.5 : 26556644.8669999912000

       

       

      Can someone please help me understand this different behavior of calculation.
