    Summary:
    Query: On the smart form requisition page a non-functional currency value is displayed in 9 or 10 decimal places
    Content:

    On the smart form requisition page a non-functional currency value is displayed in 9 or 10 decimal places.

    e.g.  0.766134484585

    Oracle my support note says that this fixed in R13.  Non-functional Currency Prices Show 9 or 10 Decimals (Doc ID 2050939.1)

    How can I reduce the number of decimal places from 9 or 10 to  2 decimal places?

    If I use extended precision I will have to define this for all currencies. Is there a central setup or profile option where I can control this?

      Not that I am aware of. These are displayed per standard design. Can I ask why it is important to see the precision in 2 decimals? As in, what is the functional importance?

      Currently the rate is showing almost around 30 decimal places. See attached screenshot. 

      Kind regards

      I got that. My question was: Why is it important to see only 2 decimal places?

    • FelixM

      Ashok - The business are not happy with the 30 odd decimal places being displayed from a end user perspective. They say they want to to be around 6 decimal places. (Sorry, not 2). Is there a was to control it using a profile?

      There is not setup that you use to configure this as far as I am aware. I will double check. Yes, it looks lengthy. But my submission is there is no direct impact on calculations or transactions and the Edit Requisition page displays the truncated conversion rates too. This is an entry page where the user is simply creating data to add to the shopping cart. I will revert if I have any proposal for the same.

      Thanks Ashok, can you please double check and let me know.

      I checked the business rules. The display rule is simply to display a maximum of up to 10 decimal places and this is one of the pages where that rules plays to context.

      Sorry, I did not understand. You mentioned above the display rule is to display 10 decimal places, but the screen shows around 38 decimal places?  What do you mean by the rule plays to context?

      My bad. I meant not play to context. I am researching whether the display rule of maximum of 10 decimal places applies to this page or not.

      Based on a discussion with my colleagues, the rules of rounding off upto 10 decimal places was designed only for attributes that the users manually entered in our pages. The conversion rate we see in the screenshot is a rate that is derived from the Manage Currency Conversions setup and so is not within scope of the designed 10 decimal point display rules. 

      This means that what you are observing is how it was intended. There is no mechanism currently available to limit it to say 6 decimal places as you are suggesting.
