Decimal difference


On the L3 training:

Why does your screen shot include decimals in the lowest level and does not calculate in decimals on the lower levels? My results are all one decimal place. If i leave it with one decimal place would that cause me mismatches downstream?


  • Hi

    This may be a case of significant digits and not decimal formatting. If you leave it with one decimal place, it won't affect your answers as decimals are just representation of what is being viewed at the front end but behind the scenes, Anaplan hold the numbers as they are uploaded or calculated upto more than 10 significant digits.

    Hope above helps


  • @Himanshu1998 thank you. So if i change the Format - Minimum Significant Digits to 0 i wont see the numbers behind the decimal?


    Yes, that's right.
