Default Trendline error???

Has anybody else had this problem? If one uses a 6 order polynomial as
trendline and then s/he enters manually in an other column the same equation
taken from the displayed trendline equation on the graph , the original
trendline is different from the one manually entered. Excel plots the two
different curves having the same equation!!!
Please see an example at : http://www.geocities.com/audax/error.xls
Thank you for the help.

Disregard the previous message. The problem is due to the rounding off. The
trendline calculation is OK.

See my website for the use of LINEST to get coefficients of polynomial fit
into cells
Then you are using Excel's maximum precision.
