Response to Floating point math?
FYI - this can have an interesting effect on input form data validations in Hyperion Planning. Let's say you're checking to see if a column of percentages adds up to 100%. Even in situations where everything adds up to 100%, the validation can fail due to floating point decimal issues.
The solution is to alter the validation so that you're not checking for " = 100", but rather checking for " > 99.99999" AND " < 100.00001".
