Different totals than in data source

Hi all. 

My data set in Excel shows the total sales for the years 2013 - 2020 to be 6,107,910 but PBI is showing me 6,107,925

What I did, to double-check, I basically just uploaded to PBI a mock of my original data set with only total sales for 2013 - 2020 years and nothing else, and the error keeps showing... Please, help!

You need to change the Data Type to Decimal or Fixed Decimal, currently its Whole number in order to match with your Excel file.

The data type of the `AMOUNT` column is set to "Whole Number" in the Power Query editor. Switch it "Decimal Number" and PBI will show "...910" too.
