2084175 - Manage Data - Field Format Decimal Precision and Rounding Rules - Compensation

Symptom

  • Setting the decimal precision for fields.
     
     
  • How do we change the decimal precision for a field?
     
     
  • Can we have different precision/rounding for fields of the same field type?

Environment

  • Compensation

Resolution

Changing Decimal Precision

  • Currently for compensation changing the decimal precision requires an SCR. The change needs to be applied via xml updates and cannot be done via Admin Tools.

 

Decimlal Precision for Same Field Type

  • The system supports varios field types, such as Money, amount, percentage -  and you want different rounding rules/decimal precision for them.
     
      
    For example you have 2 fields both set as type = "money". One you want to have 2 decimal point precision, the other one is 0 decimal points. Is this possible?
     
     
  • No, this is not possible.
     
     
    Decimal precision value is set at the template level for the field type. So if you set precision at 2 decimals for the field type-money, then all fields on your worksheet that are money field type will have 2 decimal point precision.
