dsouza123,
That would account for my error. I had been using the series
1 + 1/1! + 1/2! + ... 1/12!
which gives 2.7182818283, and this resulted in my experiments with my conversion formula to sometimes give results that did not quite agree (although only in the ninth or tenth decimal place). Inv ln(1) is much more accurate (not to say simpler) and consistently gives the correct result, thank you very much.
