Hello Robert,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I see your point here and I agree with you.

I have investigated a little further about using calc. I haven't come up
with a solution yet. I don't know yet which function calc is using to
perform this operation. I have tried calcFunc-vsum but fell back on the
same issue.

#+BEGIN_SRC elisp
(calcFunc-vsum 85.6 .1)

Best regards
