Hi there,

I am a newbie to AX, and have some questions regarding to AX4.0 data decimal places storage.

As I know my company has the following AX4.0 decimal places setting:

• Amount: 2 decimal places

• Quantity: 4 decimal places

Here are my questions:

1) How many decimal places are exactly stored in AX4.0 DB in our case?

2) Why >2 decimal places values found in Excel (ver 2003) sum up ledger amount (expect to be “$0”), which exported from General Ledger Module, Ledger Transaction List” text report”? Total details as follow:

• Foreign Ledger Amount -$0.0000000314298063130

• Local Ledger Amount -$0.00000001198613517814

2) We export a text file from AX40 transaction ledger list, and found 2 decimal places only in each ledger. But when  opening the file in excel and sum up all the ledgers amount, the sum amount have > 2 decimal place come out.

That is what we not understand... Our setting of AX & Excel are as follow:

- AX: 2 dec places in Amount

- Excel: General
