Default mail merge keeps putting in decimals that are not on excel sheet

mail merge keeps putting in decimals that are not on excel sheet -- example
would be you've got a figure saying £5.37 but instead it brings up
£5.3699999999999 on the preview -- I've tried looking at the figures in the
spreadsheet and there's nothing wrong with them - I've even tried formating
the figures in the spreadsheet and that doesn't work.
