Consider the implications of doing this. Use cross reference facility to
take a look at every form, interactive application, batch application, ....
that use this data item. But given an option I won't do it.

The decimals can changed in the Data Dictionary but whatever you do make sure you do not change the file decimals. You should only change the Display Decimal. Also, we were told by JDE that any data item with a class of QTYINV must have the decimal set to be the same for all data items.

Also, you should not make decimal changes once you have data in the system, because and existing data can be corrupted by the change.
