Friends don't let friends use Excel for statistics! There are many scholarly articles available about the statistical problems with Excel. Microsoft knows about them, yet won't fix them. Let the consumer beware.

In this case, my guess is that the data in Excel has greater precision then the 3 decimal places shown in the original post.

Hi,

I checked that bit and changed all the data to be strictly the same amount of decimal places
