SAP BW Reports Number Conversion Issue Noted - 02/26/09

There is a formatting glitch when exporting any SAP BW (Business Warehouse) report to Excel. The issue involves reports that show the dollar amount as 0.00 in any column/row. When these reports are exported to Excel, the 0.00 amounts become 0.00000000.

The change does not alter the total, which is still 0. However, to get the report to display the amount as 0.00, the columns need to be manually formatted in Excel.

This issue is expected to persist until the next service pack upgrade is installed in the fall.
