'% sessions with search' query

(Using GA add-on in Google Sheets)

I'm having some issues with the accuracy of the data regarding '% Sessions with search'. Essentailly, the '% Sessions with search' is not matching up with the 'Sessions with Search' and the 'Sessions' figures.

 

Looking at an example of visitors to my website from Poland:

% Sessions with Search = 0.04

Sessions with Search = 983

Sessions = 2205

Given the final two figures we would expect the '% Sessions with Search' to be 0.4458 (983/2205).

 

I've checked my filters, dimensions, metrics, date range, etc. and they are all correct.

 

Does anyone have an idea of (i) which one is right? (ii) where this inaccuracy comes from ? (iii) how to fix it?

 

Thanks,

Michael
