When attempting to create/update assignment costing in Manager Self-Service, an error is incorrectly thrown due to rounding issues. This happens where the costing percentage is 4 digits, including 2 decimal places.
1. An assignment costing record is created with with proportion = 94.01, but the value is automatically changed to 94.0.
2. Another row is added with proportion=5.99.

You will no t be permitted to save your changes until you have corrected the records so that the total cost allocation is one hundred percent."
