Consider the following scenario in Inventory in Microsoft Dynamics SL:

  • You open IN Setup (10.950.00) and set Decimal Places to 4 for Quantities.

  • You open Receipts (10.010.00) and you enter a receipt for a four decimal quantity, such as 10.7641.

  • You open Issues (10.020.00) and issue the quantity that was received.

When you do this, you receive an error message that resembles the one here.

System Message 6855

The quantity available for this Lot is 10.7641.


The Val function in Visual Basic .NET believes that the quantity is 10.764100000001 which is greater than 10.7641.


Enter on two separate lines in the Issues screen:

Line 1: Qty = 10 w/ Lot Number

Line 2: Qty = .7641
