Symptoms

On :  9.2 version, Functionality

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  
---------------
When using Express Capitalization with a "Many Assets From Each Activity" Asset Identification Rule and either the Project or Activity Percent Distribution, the system does not enforce that the percentages sum to 100%. If you identify 3 assets and enter 33.333 for each percentage, the system should illustrate a 0.001 Remaining percentage but does not, instead indicating 0.000. This seems inaccurate but the process proceeds. It just does not account for all expenditures.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The system should capture the remaining percentage of 0.001 instead of 0.000 when the total is 99.999. It should not round it and assume that there is no remaining percentage..when the total percentage is > 99.5

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a project/Activity
2. Define Asset Integration rule of  Express Capitalization with a "Many Assets From Each Activity" with Activity percentage Distribution or Project Percentage Distribution
3. Define Express Assets. Add 3 assets to the activity with percentages 33.333 for each
4. Notice that the total percentage for all these 3 assets add up to  99.999
5. Issue is that the Remaining percentage is displayed as  0.000 instead of 0.001 and also no message is shown indicating
6. Because of issue in #5, the following message is not triggered even when  the total percentage is not 100%

Remaining percentage does not equal zero. (13100,628)

Total percentage must equal 100 percent.  View the "Remaining Percentage" field to see the amount left to distribute.

Any total percentage amount > 99.5, the issue persists.
