Are you saying that Excel shifts the decimal point one place to the right? Hard to believe. Please post some screen shots

I don't have any ideas on why the data is shifted by ONE decimal place either. The only thought that comes to mind is some type of custom formatting in the Excel cells that you are pasting to.

If the Excel cell is formatted as percentage, when you paste a number such as 4.2900, it would show up as 429.00% But that is two decimal places.
