Embedded BI-Publisher numeric precision


Well Known Member
Hi List,

I have a problem running a BI-Publisher report I cannot reproduce via BI-Publisher Desktop:

when I'm going to print "big numbers" (milion) I get exponential notation regardless of formatting layout.

In other words:
I can print a number like 345.234,45 but 2.285.268,00 is printed as 2,285268E6

Please note this happens when the number printed is coming from a "sum" statement, thus it's calculated directly from BI-Publisher as a calculation based onto XML tag.

Since everything is correct locally with BI-Publisher Desktop, it sounds like a different "math-numeric" precision used by the server itself.

Did you ever experience a similar issue ?
