    Hi atef083,

    Is the increase of the decimal places from 2 to 4 legally required in your home country or is this something that you / your colleagues 'just' want to have?

    Best regards,

    Ludwig

    Hi atef083,

    Changing property on EDT itself it's just UI change and it will not change any old data in the system. But you should keep in mind that values with more decimals can cause rounding issues and this kind of changed should be test very carefully.

    By the way, could you, please, provide your business requirement? Why do you want to change quantity number of decimals property?

    Hi Atef083,

    When you change the NoOfDecimals property to 4, all fields and controls that are using this EDT are changed globally.

    When you change the round-off value, the value that the user types is saved correctly to the database. Make sure that you add enough zeros for the NoOfDecimals property that you specified. You must make sure to correctly set the NoOfDecimals property so that all four decimal places are used. For example, if you leave the round-off value at .0100, the Net Amount on a purchase order will be rounded to two decimals instead of four.
