SYMPTOMS

When Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 is set to use the Korean language or the Japanese language, the default precision of a money field is set to two instead of zero. Therefore, the money that appears in a form or in a report contains two decimal places.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 multicurrency feature does not support currency-based precision.

RESOLUTION

This problem is fixed in the latest cumulative update rollup for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.
