    Is this based on a MDX olap .unv Universe?   It sounds very much like the bXML 'flattening' problem we used to get in the MDXINTERFACE

    Also, What's your SP and Patch level ?   Most customers are on SP02 Patch2.17/18/19 or SP04

    hi prateek,

    Could you please check whether formatting number in webi is solving your issue (FormatNumber([Total Earnings];"#,##.##").

    If data from universe itself is truncated, then please check in universe or in BW backend. pls check the below link if useful.

      Hello Manesh

      Thanks for your comments ....however format number technique will work on webi report but in my case data already got trucated when i receive data at query level, i am not getting decimal places there....

      when i preview data on query panel level i surprised data already got trucated and rounded up.......

      also the note you have mentioned "1633215" in the pdf does not exist or under internal purpose only.........

      Can you please provide me some details related to this note ?Is this patch is already appliedon  BI 7.3 etc?

    Right click on the cell where it is truncating...>>format number>> and select a number format wich has desired number of decimal places.

    At the Universe Level if you have access right click on the object and select object format. In the next window that pops up select number and set the desired format. You should be able to get correct result on the report.

    Hope this helps
