### Question Status

Hello!

We have two digit after decimal places for the unit cost in the P.O entry form  , due some requirements we need to have three digits after decimal places. How to change this? If some one knows kindly post answer for this . I will be very thankful.

Use the Change Decimal Places Utility on the Inventory Area Page.

There are actually two ways to change the currency decimal of the item; one can be accomplished using the GP's built in utility --> Microsoft Dynamics GP menu - Utilities - Inventory - Change Decimal Places. The other is by using SQL scripting:

Example: Update to 5 Decimal Places, the Update statement is:

Update IV10001 set DECPLCUR = '6' where ITEMNMBR = 'CURRENCY'

Note that

1 - 0 decimal place

2 - 1 decimal place

3 - 2 decimal places

4 - 3 decimal places

5 - 4 decimal places

6 - 5 decimal places

Hilal,

The decimals for unit cost is linked to the currency, you will need to increase the currency decimals.

The currency decimal already set to 3 digits ,item class decimal are in 3 digits , and item Unit of measurement decimal palaces are also in 3 digits . But still the item unit cost appears in the 2 decimals.

On the Item Card, what are the settings? Also, are you talking about the number of decimals showing on the screen or printing on the invoice, or both?

Kind regards.
