2660101 - System is Rounding up Quantity for the UoM 'each' in the Stock Overview


You have created a Sales Order SAO (SAO represents the Sales Order ID) with a Quantity of the Product PRD (PRD represents the Product ID) in the Unit of Measure 'each' in decimal and you have released the Customer Demand to execution. Now when you go to Supply Planning work center, and open the Product Planning Details of PRD, you can see that the Available Quantity is correctly displayed with the decimal places. However, in Stock Overview, the Quantity is rounded up.

You do not see any reason why the system should be showing rounded Quantity and cutting off the Decimal Places.
