This is a rounding issue. Field 'Business Section Amount' (id = business SectionAmount) is $2,747.885 and each Goal Weight is 50%, field 'Target Payout' (id = goalBasis) of one goal is 50% * $2,747.885 = $1,373.9425, after number formatting the value is $1,373.943. As there are 2 goals, the total value = $1,373.943 * 2 = $2,747.886.

You can see the attachment 'Varpay fields calculations' to see how the Variable Pay fields are calculated.


In order to avoid this discrepancy, you can define the Number Format of the field 'Target Payout' (id = goalBasis) as #,##0.000##.
