Excel 2007 has problem with multiplication

Excel 2007, the most hyped of all the Excel programs by Microsoft is going to have to relearn part of its multiplication table.

Try to get Excel 2007 to multiply some pairs of numbers where the result is 65,535, Excel would incorrectly display 100,000 as the answer.

Some of the example of the mistakes are multiplying 77.1 by 850 or multyplieng 10.2 by 6,425 or multyplieng 20.4 by 3,212.5.

The same does not give an error when used in the previous version of the Excel

What a shame for the Office (specially Excel team). The most hyped of all the applictaion my Microsoft had such a simple looking Bug.
