  • SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Go to the Design Reports view.
  3. Run a Report

Extension field in the report shows 5 decimal places.


The extension field is a key figure field and you have added it to the report as an attribute of a characteristic. The underlying data type of an extension field added as attribute has 5 decimal places. Hence it will show 5 decimal places for the field in the report. The key figure extension field added as a key figure will not show such a behavior.


This is the designed system behavior.
