When using the function Dataunit.GetItem a value with a 0 units and 11 digits to right of the decimal ie, 0.00000000001 is treated differently in 4.0 and sys9.

In HFM 4.0, this value is treated as non-zero, but in System 9 the value is treated as 0. This impacts how rules are run that depend on this result.
