Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2008

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Load Profiling and Settlement - Version: 4.70.01.01
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

When aggregating cuts (each with intervals having only two places after the decimal), some intervals in the aggregated cut have more than two decimal places.

For example, adding the following five numbers together results in more decimals than expected:

123.63 
-517.4 
-8160.88
2331.68
7070.09
TOTAL:  847.12000000000100
