Decimal Places for a Number Formatted Line Item

What is the maximum number of decimal places for a number formatted line item? Is there a way to check which cell for a given line item has the most decimal places? Need to know for an export into a datalake / warehouse for storage

not sure the maximum.
to determine how many decimals a number has, best ay is to have a text line item, bring the number value and count it LEN(TEXT(item))
Do that for what's after the common, you can FIND it with FIND, exactly like in excel

They are held in Anaplan using IEEE754 double-precision binary floating-point format which gives from 15 to 17 significant decimal digits precision and up to a three-digit signed decimal exponent. Many other products also support this natively as modern hardware works with it efficiently.
