Excel Math Mistakes

Last response: in Applications

In two of my spreadsheets, Excel is giving incorrect answers to very simple cell1*cell2 math calculations. I am running Microsoft excel 2007 on a Windows 7 machine. The cells that I am trying to multiply contain formulas that include the multiplication of other cells. These values are correct. When I ask excel to multiply them together though, it gives incorrect answers. The answers are very off, so it is not a rounding error. If I create new cells that are not formulas, just the raw numbers, and multiply those, excel gives me the correct answers.

Any thoughts?

It might help if you gave an example that people can check.
