Default 8710 Error

When auditing my logbook for a job, I realized I made a mistake. In ForeFlight, (which I use for my logbook) itís really easy to make a mistake if you arenít careful. I put 32 instead of 3.2 on one of my flights since I forgot the decimal and was flying so much during the time meaning my total time was changing a lot so I didnít notice at the time. I found this error after my commercial multi engine checkride so my 8710 shows the flight time with 32 hours more hours.(I took the checkride with 800+ hours so on no way the 32 hours was applied to the flight time requirements of the rating) is there anything I can do or should be worried about? Or just correct it on the next 8710? Thanks

If you actually had enough time for the rating, no biggy. Correct it on the next 8710. Presumably you'll have enough time that the numbers won't decrease in any one category?

You could probably correct the official record with the FAA by writing a letter but that's more trouble than it's worth. They really only care that you met the requirements for the ratings you hold.

Ya itís the multi rating, already had my commercial, so there wasnít even a flight time requirement, even if it was my intial commercial still blow it out of the water by 500+ hours.

I did not research the answer but if memory serves me right as a minimum you need to meet the hour requirements for the certificate or rating you are applying for.

It is useful to be accurate if at any pint in time you loose your logbook and accurate 8710ís will be of some use in reconstructing.

Back to your question, let it be.
If it wasnít to reach the required hours then itís a job event.
If you had 800 hrs it really doesnít make a difference if you had to gain 700 or 670 to get to your ATP numbers.
Unless these hours were specifically night or XC and you wouldnít have met the min reqs without them.
