Increase of decimal places in SAP Business ByDesign

Hey all,

our customer requests to work with more than 2 decimal places due to their little revenue amounts, they would need 6 decimal places.

I know that due to ISO 4217 the system can't display in all transactions more than 2 deciaml places. However in one of the previous discussions here it is stated that the system calculates in the background alway with at least 4 decimal places.

First: Can you please verify this information?

My question here is is it possible that 6 decimal places are displayed on invoices and sales orders?

Thanks for the feedback here.

Kind regards,

    Dear Araine,

    First of all since you not mentioned your currency we cannot exactly pin-point the decimal point allowed in your document.

    Anyway you can check "Business Configuration --> Open Activity List --> Currencies"

    What was suggested in other blog is If you had a Product that you want to sell price at $12.3456 for 1 ea then you create a sales order in bulk for 100 ea that way the total value would be =100 * 12.3456 = $1234.56/100 ea.

    Since this also a legal requirement, i don't think you can achieve this.

    BYW I dont see where it is shown as 4 decimal in backend, could you help me with this.
