2978256 - SAC number out of range error message even when correcting the amount in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) - 2020.14.21


In a story table, when entering a value with more than 7 decimal places the system throws an error message:
"The number you are entering is out of range"

The problem is that when the user now enters a correct value (with less than 7 decimal places) still the error message is displayed. The user has no chance then to revert back the planning figures.
