Does CTABLES round different than CROSSTABS?

s_smith
Hello, I am getting output that shows different results using custom tables vs crosstabs when weighting is on. The decimal values differ slightly and some cell percentages that should be 0 have a small value in ctables. Could it be that these tools round differently? Any other ideas or solutions to ensure matching results? Using SPSS Statistics v26. Have tried weighting via Weight Cases and Use effective base weight variable. Thank you.
