[Closed] loss of significant digits during measure load

I have a percentage type measure, with a fixed target of 97.5%. On the 'edit measure loader' Field Maps tab, I have a field for the ACTUAL_NUMERATOR and ACTUAL_DENOMINATOR, zeros for BENCHMARK, FORCAST and STRETCH, and the following for the target:


When I preview the load, and it tells me it will have 97.50 for my New Target. I can load the data, and it works fine. If I immediately go to preview the data again, it says 100% of the fields will need to be updated instead of 100% unchanged (my load method is 'Add new/ replace actual/target). If I scroll over on the preview screen, it says the New Target will be 97.50 and the old target is 98.00.

So, I seem to be losing a significant digit on the preview screen.

The measure itself seems to have stored 97.5% percent, based on the measure detail report. It's just the preview screen that gets it wrong.

On the measure definition screen (not the loader) how is your display format set? Try changing the display format to D8.3 and try again.

If you still have the same results, then that is a bug - albeit a very minor one.
