Also if i make another formula like (Total field value * 2), answer should be 191.68 & not 191.67

OK, then you need to change it to a script, with this code:

`var v1 = Number(this.getField("Text9").valueAsString) / 12;event.value = roundUp(v1, 2);`

And:

`var v1 = Number(this.getField("Text10").valueAsString) * 2;event.value = roundUp(v1, 2);`

And place this code as a doc-level script (go to Tools - JavaScript - Document JavaScripts, and create a new item called "scripts"):

`function roundUp(v, nDecimals) {    return Math.ceil(v * Math.pow(10, nDecimals)) / Math.pow(10, nDecimals);}`

Are you using a script for this? If so, please post it.
