Order Rounding Modes

  • iPad
  • Online
  • Windows

Rounding occurs at either of the following times:

  • When calculating the Line Item Total Cost
  • When calculating the Discount Net Amount

Enable visibility to the Preference setting ENABLE_ORDER_LINE_TOTAL_ROUND_vod.

If the user has field level security access to the Preference setting, rounding is done at the end of the calculation of the order line. For example:

  • Quantity = 4
  • List Amount = 3
  • Discount = 1.4%
  • Total cost(Net Amount) = 4 X 3 X (1 - .014) = 11.832 and then round to 11.83

If the user does not have field-level access to the Preference setting, rounding is done at the calculation of the discounted price. For example:

  • Quantity = 4
  • List Amount = 3
  • Discount = 1.4%
  • Discounted Net Amount = 3 X (1 - .014) = 2.958 and then round to 2.96 (for quantity = 1)
  • Then 2.96 X 4 = 11.84

The difference in the timing of rounding can cause a discrepancy.

Calculating Discount and Net Price

Depending at which point in the calculation numbers are rounded, small differences can occur in the Net Amounts and Order Totals. The un-rounded value is used in the Line Discount for all calculations when the user enters the discount in the Net Price field. This improves the accuracy of the Order calculations.
