    Dear,

     

    % complete as can be seen in the image is bringing many decimal places. I already checked the object is selected as default 0.00%. What can be happening?

     

    % COMPLETE TASK

    The important thing is the number of decimals

    In the 15.5.1 system at which I looked at it is is set a 21, but it is read only.

    If it editable in your system set it at something else and then at 2 to see if that makes a difference.

    If it is 2 and not editable open a case with support.

    The same for me in 14.4

    If I enter more decimals

    the excess is cut off when I save

    The same for tasks and subprojects.

    Once an attribute is created, there is no supported way for the user to change the number of decimals.

    Open a case with support.

    Urmas, did this% update routine influence that% of tasks would increase the decimal places?


    Note: I performed this routine

     


    production environment

     


    In the Homologation Environment, it presents only the two houses, which would be ideal !!

     

    Note: I did not run the Update% Complete routine

    I do not think running the Update% Complete job should have any effect on it. The job is used when the % Complete calculation method is other than manual.

    You could check if the db definition for the number of decimals in the view is other than the default 2

    Use the query

    SELECT
          LABEL
          ,ATTRIBUTE_CODE
          ,DECIMALS
     
      FROM ODF_VIEW_ATTRIBUTES
         , ODF_VIEWS
    where LABEL = '% Complete'
    and VIEW_ID = ODF_VIEWS.ID
    and ODF_VIEWS.CODE = 'task'
    and ODF_VIEWS.OBJECT_CODE = 'task'
    and ODF_VIEWS.VIEW_TYPE ='property'

    The screen shot shown is for a Sub-project.  The data for this is not coming from the Tasks, but from the Project % Complete.

     

    Are real tasks being shown with 8 decimal places?

     

    The Project % Complete is also defined as 2 decimal places (at least in the environment I looked at), but is stored on the database as what looks like 17 decimal places.  In the environment I looked at (V15.5) it displayed this data as two decimal places in the UI.

     

    I don't have access to V14.4 environment to repeat, but, you may be experiencing a 'challenge' when looking at sub-project from the task view.

    Just wondering again...

    If the value is stored in the db with several decimals (float) is it not the definition of the field in the task properties which determines how many decimals are displayed regardless of if it is for a task or a subproject?

    Hello -

    Go to Configure in the Task List page and select List Column Filter>>Fields.  Click on the Properties of the % Complete field.  What does this show for the Decimal Places field?

    In 15.5.1 that seems to be editable in the layout fields, but not in the filter field.

    That is user configuration and not system.

    So are other users seeing the same or just one.
