1865742 - Quantity Value Gets Rounded When Doing Cost Estimation For A Material

Symptom

While performing the Material Cost Estimate Run, the valuation quantity for the input materials gets rounded to the nearest whole number value; though in the Production Bills of Material you have maintained the values for the input material in decimals.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Inventory Valuation work center.
  2. Go to the Material Cost Estimate view.
  3. In the Show field, select All Cost Estimates from drop down and search for the respective Material ID for which you want to see the cost estimation.
  4. Select the Edit button, in the opened window go to the Input Materials tab under Details section.
  5. You can see that valuation quantity for the input Material ID has been rounded to the nearest whole number.

Cause

In the Material Cost Estimates Fine Tuning activity, as you have selected the check box for the cost type Estimated Cost, system was rounding the values to nearest whole number while performing material cost estimate run.
