Goal

Voucher Build creates a PO Voucher out of balance by one penny (.01) and populates the Unit Price incorrectly (Unit Price on the PO Voucher is not matching what is on the EDI file) in the following scenario:

Scenario:
UNIT_PRICE has 3 digits to the right of the decimal, the MERCHANDISE_AMT has 3 digits to the right of the decimal, and the GROSS_AMT has 3 digits to the right of the decimal.

The out of balance issue occurs due to rounding errors when UNIT_PRICE is multiplied by QTY_VCHR. In addition, the PO Voucher will be in Recycle Status with the following error:

ERROR:
Voucher Merchandise Amount xxx.x <> sum of invoice line amounts yyy.yy.

When trying to re-save the Voucher, the below error occurs:
Decimal precision for payments record amount fields does not match currency setting. (7220,32)

What needs to be done in order to avoid this error?
