Calculating Hours Worked/Period field in IT0008



My understanding as to how "Hours Worked/Period" is calculated by SAP is 2080 / 24 (for semi-monthly). This comes out to be 86.666666666666666666666666666667. R/3 rounds this to the nearest tenth, 86.67. We are a U.S. company.

The problem with this is that when calculating insurance coverage benifits (IT0168) for basic life, the amount comes out, using certain hourly rates, to a different insurance coverage than it would had R/3 calculated it without rounding.

We have also set a rounding rule in the IMG under "Define Coverage Rules" that specifies to round up to rounding division 1000.

Is there a way to get around how R/3 rounds the "Hours Worked/Period"?

Best Regards,
