Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select Implementations Projects view.
  3. Select the First Implementation and select Open Activity List button.
  4. Go to Fine Tune tab.
  5. Search and open the Activity Currencies.

You cannot change the number of decimals displayed in the Display Decimal column for the predefined currencies.


The Currency Code and Display Decimal are set as per the standard official ISO 4217. Please refer to the site for further information:

Since it is ISO standards, it is not allowed to change in the fine tuning activity.
