I gave the calculator a try with a few numbers, and it seems to be working okay for me.

Does it completely not work for you? Or is the issue just with specific numbers?

There may also be some browser issues. What browser and browser version are you using? (i.e. Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari)

Hi Ken,

I put in all required info, hit calculate and nothing happens.
I do notice that at the bottom of that page all the site info is faded out grey.

I use IE8 64bit. My settings block doubleclick.net

Not worried to much about it I can find other sites.

I can use the other calculators with no problems.

It does not work for me (IE8), either.

Works fine utilizing both Firefox 25.0.1 and IE 11.

My tech partner said that there was a minor IE8 compatibility bug. It should now be fixed. Also, he fixed some formatting issues. If you still have any problems, please let me know.

Thanks for reporting on this issue.

Ken -

It works in IE8, Firefox and Chrome, but there are still minor formatting issues.

Using the default numbers, change the Additional Contributions field to .10 and you will see the issue begin at month 4.

Ricochet -

It doesn't matter if it is $ 0.10 or $ 1000000.10 or an infinite number of other combinations. It readily demonstrates two formatting issues. 

When troubleshooting, a simple example usually makes life easier, which was the entire point.

My tech partner has updated the code so it now properly rounds to whole cents.

Seeing Ken felt it necessary to get his Tech to refine the fix, to further make this site the best on the net

I see your (decimal) point.  ;)
