When you view a closed opportunity in Microsoft Business Solutions CRM 1.2, you experience one of the following symptoms:
The value that appears in the Actual Revenue column is ten times more than the actual revenue for that opportunity.
You receive the following error message when you try to open the closed opportunity:
You must enter a number between 0,00 and 100 000 000 000,00.
This problem occurs if the Microsoft CRM server uses a Regional Options setting that specifies a European number format. The European number format uses a comma (,) as the decimal symbol. This problem occurs because the Closed Opportunities form does not correctly handle a comma as the decimal symbol.
Additionally, if you use the French (France) language locale with the (# ###,00) number format defined in CRM System Settings, you receive the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.
Microsoft CRM has a fix for this problem that is part of a cumulative update. The cumulative update information is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
904435 Update Rollup 2 is available for Microsoft CRM 1.2
