I have a problem with the conversion to the EURO:
The company works with milimeters and the unit cost sometimes is very small,
so when you pass the EURO conversion this field will be 0.
There is an example below that shows the situation:

Quantity in milimeters/ ESP Unit cost in milimeters/ ESP
Total cost/ ESP

1950 0,0060
11,7=12 ESP
if converted to the EURO:
1950 0,0000361 but with 4
decimals 12/166,386=0,07 EUROS
it will be 0.0000 EUROS

Ej:

100 0,0090
0,9=1 ESP
if converted to the EURO:
100 0,000054 but with 4 decimals
it will be 0.0000 EUROS 1/166,386=0,0060=0,00 EUROS

The problem is that after the conversion, when the unit cost and the total
cost are very small we will lost them.
I would like to know if someone else has had the same problem and what have
you done.
Thanks,
Oriol Raventós.

Hi Oriol,

You should increase the numbers of decimals for the field/data item that you
have the problem.

If increasing the number of decimals is what you plan on doing then make sure that you do a where used on that field. If it is stored in any files you will have to do a conversion.

Hi Oriol,
