Symptoms

On OFSAA 5.6, when attempting to create a new attribute on the Customer dimension with the data type = NUMBER, when attempting to put any value > 0 in the Scale field, the following error is thrown:

ERROR
Scale must be between 0 and 0

However, the OFSAAI user guide states the following:

If NUMBER is selected as the Data Type:

The Scale field is enabled with "0" as default value.

• Enter the scale value between 0 and 5.
The Scale can be edited to a value between 0 and 5 thereby
making it a decimal. Scale value less than scale defined is
permitted. Scale value greater than scale value is
automatically trimmed.

• Key in valid numeric in the Default value filed on which the
Attribute is to be defined.

Steps to reproduce
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Financial Services Applications -> Master Maintenance -> Dimension Management -> Attributes
2. Choose Customer dimension
3. Create a new attribute, choose Data Type = NUMBER
4. Attempt to enter any value between 0 and 5 for scale.
==> Error message is triggered.
