ABSENCE DURATION is rounding upto to 2 Decimal Places only (Doc ID 2296861.1)

Last updated on MARCH 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Human Resources - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As per Bug 16343590 , the absence duration field should not round anymore to 2 decimal places, whereas on 12.2.5 and the version of the file is much newer than what is stated in the Bug Fix, but we are still facing the rounding to 2 decimal places.

Ex: In the BG_ABSENCE_DURATION formula returning 0.125, but on the absence screen (Java and OAF), it is showing 0.13 instead of 0.125.

The absence hours round off to be allowed up to 3 decimals
If BG_ABSENCE_DURATION formula returns 0.125, on the absence screen (Java and OAF), it should show same instead of 0.13

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Self Service > Absence management > Create Absence and Submit
2. Once the absence gets approved , verify the absence hours on self service page
3. It is showing 0.13 instead of 0.125
