Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

While entering a Percentage Journal entry with value of % more than 2 places of decimals, the system always defaults the number of decimal places for the % Percentage column (PERCENT) to 2 decimals. In some cases, where Percentage could be more than two decimals, the expected amount calculated based on the Percentage does not match to the actual system calculated amount since the decimal places is rounded of to two decimals.

Example:

Gross Amount: 57,153.06

Expected % Value: 29.670329670%
Expected Value: 16,957.50

Actual % value: 29.67%
Actual Value: 16,957.31

Difference: 16,957.50 - 16,957.31 = 0.19
