Fixed Deals Rounding Error in FIXED _DEAL_GL_REF_DATA Table (Doc ID 2000879.1)

Last updated on MARCH 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 13.1.4.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

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.
