Symptoms

In Oracle Retail Sales Audit  (ReSA), rounding of values causes an 'out of balance' condition.

The RTLOG field for unit discount amount on the IDISC record allows 4 decimal places. When we calculate the discount amount across the items within the transaction, we use all 4 decimal places. It appears as though the base Retail Sales Audit (ReSA) import program is only using 2 decimal places to calculate the Sales Total (this is compared against Tender Total).  The rounding to 2 decimal places is causing a variance of 1 pence.  Analysis has been done and confirmed that if all 4 decimal places were used, the transaction would be in balance.
