Symptoms

On Profitability Management (PFT) 5.5, when running a Dynamic Driver, Percent Distribution allocation with a large number of drivers, it appears that the percent is not totaling to 100%.  Upon further research, it appears that there are some records that generated a 0 value when a percent should have been calculated.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
Output rows are generated with 0 when a small percent amount should have been calculated.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expected output rows with even small percentage amount.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a new percent distribution allocation with a large number of drivers.
2. Run the allocation.
3. Check the results.
