Fixed Deals Rounding Error in FIXED _DEAL_GL_REF_DATA Table
Last updated on MARCH 31, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 184.108.40.206 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The sum of values in FIXED_DEAL_GL_REF_DATA is different from the total amount in header table of fixed deal.
Steps to Recreate:
1. Create a deal for less amount (i.e 400).
2. Try to associate approximately 360 locations with different contrib_ratio.
3. Run vendinvf pre, vendinvf, vendinvf post batches. Check the staging tables STAGE_FIXED_DEAL_HEAD, STAGE_FIXED_DEAL_DETAIL which are used by Retail Invoice Matching (ReIM).
4. Run dealfinc batch and check the values populated in FIXED_DEAL_GL_REF_DATA table. Fixed deal amount is 400, but in FIXED_DEAL_GL_REF_DATA table, after summing(contrib_value) it is equal to 399.9941 which is not equal to the actual fixed deal amount.So value going to General Ledger (GL) differs from the original value.
