Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Hi Heidi,

Locate the slide switch with the following under it:

"+ 3 2 1 0 F"

Slide the tab so that the number of places to the right of the decimal point you want shown / printed is above the number - in your case it would be "2". You may also use the "+" setting, which is "add mode" for adding and subtracting 2 digit decimals - and is convenient for currency calculations. These two settings and "F" (floating) are detailed on Page 1 and 2 of the manual - that I have linked below for you:

SOURCE: I want to increase the number of decimal places

I found this solution on the HP website. Turn it on, and do what it says. Then turn it off and back on again, and the extra decimal places should show.

SOURCE: Default decimal settings

Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

Use the middle slide switch of the three between the display and the keyboard.

The far left position sets it to two decimals, the far right position displays all effective digits up to twelve, the inner positions allow you to specify the number of decimal digits.

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

The selector you are asking about is the "decimal selector". The result displayed/printed, will be in a format according to the position that you have selected as follows:

f = floating (the result will be in the number of decimal places that were entered on the keyboard

4= fixed 4 decimal places (x.0000)

3= fixed 3 decimal places (x.000)

2= fixed 2 decimal places (x.00)

0= fixed 0 decimal places (x)

add 2= (add mode*,fixed 2 places) ($.00)

Note* "ad mode" automatically enters the decimal place when entering the number on the keyboard. If you enter "123", the displayed ammount will be "1.23". If you enter "1", the display will read ".01". This is a useful setting when adding a list of numbers in a dollars/cents format, however, be careful, if entering a whole dollar ammount "three dollars" be sure to enter the decimal point, or enter the number as "300". If you don't, the result will be ".03", instead of the 3 dollars you intended.

Hold (C.CE) then whilst holding it press (M+) for approximately a second and it will move one place along in the three settings (F, 2 and 0) F shows full decimals, 2 shows 2 decimal places and 0 as yours is set to now round to the nearest whole number. I have just been sat at my desk trying to work this out as my calculator was too set to '0'. Took me reading the 'DEC DET' text with lines pointing at 'M+' and 'C.CE' to finally crack it!

Hope this helps.

Hope this helps.

You need to set your decimal selection to full-floating if you expect any numbers to be more than 4 decimal places.

Each time you press the DEC key it changes the decimal selection. From F to 0, 2, 3, 4 and A in that order. F is "full floating" but appears as a blank on the screen. A is the "add-mode" for currency transactions. The "A" does show on the screen if this is your selection.

As soon as the letter for the number of decimal places you want ("F" is blank just before 0 decimals) appears on the screen you are "ready to go." Problem is, the decimal indicator numbers and letters are so tiny and screen is so difficult to read that under many lighting conditions your selections might be all but invisible. They are in the upper left side of the screen just to the right of the equally difficult to see multiplication and division rounding indicator "5/4." PS If the 5/4 does not appear on your screen then you have set the round-off function to not available.

Above the feed button is an area for controlling the decimal placement. By leaving the slider on +, you have to manually put the decimal in.

0 - Means no decimal will be placed.

1 - Put it one place to the end. Ex: 4132.5

2 - Will make it read 413.25

3 - Will be 41.325

And so on.

Set the +43210F switch to + (or 2).

On some models it is A43210F, then use A (or 2).

+ mode will let you enter numbers (monetary) without the decimal point and assumes cents; 2 mode will just round to 2 decimals, but you must enter the decimal.
