Symptoms

After upgrading to OBIEE 11g, you've seen that the BI server is adding the FLOOR clause to queries.  This is causing data discrepancy compared to what you saw in OBIEE 10g.

For example, if the SQL generated in OBIEE 10g is:

((b-a)/a)*100


OBIEE 11g changes it to:

floor((b - a) / nullif(a, 0)) * 100

Changes

Upgrade from OBIEE 10g to OBIEE 11g.
