Floating point key figure does not clear completely with delete function

When executing a planning layout and/or a planning function, a floating

point key figure with a residual amount attempts to be deleted but does

not truly delete. The residual value remains.

We wrote an OSS note and below is the response and this was few months before.

<b>Yes, unfortunately this is the effect of both the system design and the

database aggregation. So one has to live with these effects or you can

use other data types as packed numbers instead (type amount with data

type curr, here addition and deletion is always exact with the technicaltechnical decimals).</b>

Since we have already configured and the data is stored in database, not sure if there is a way to convert to Packed numbers as well.

Did any one experience the same issue and is there a solution ?

Regards,

Kumar

    Hi Kumar,

    yes, I had the same experience once.

    We did not find any better solution than use a "normal" key figure instead of the floating point.

    regards
