Sales: Show unit price to 4 decimal places

when changing the item prices (to the GST exc price), we had to go to 4 decimal places to get this to add through correctly in the sales invoices (due to rounding). This then showed the unit price of the item to 4 decimal places (which didn’t look very nice). Is it possible that MYOB could bring in the option to show the unit price in invoices at 2-4 decimal places?

    We often have quantities exceeding 4 digits. At the moment we have to enter multiple smaller quantities since the column for quantity on Bills, whilst it will take large numbers wont PRINT out with more than 4 digits. Really annoying.

    We'd also like to option to change the look of our Bills to something that better fits with our branding.

    We use unit prices that vary regularly with the market.

    Many of these unit prices are to 3 and 4 decimal places.

    However the Purchase Order that prints out only shws the price to 2 decimal places - eg: 0.121 prints as 0.12

    We need to have it print exactly as entered.

    At the moment we are having to handwrite a note on each to explain the anomally - not a very efficient way to work.

    Thanks for the great suggestion JohnTheLA Anyone else who would like to be able to set the number of decimal places used on invoices, please cast your vote here.

  • This would also be great for hourly rate on payroll as well as our employees will either get a few cent more or let.. Being we cant pay them less then agreed we are forced to pay more...!!! :smileysad:

  • Yes! Im needing the Unit column to be tonnes and need it to be 3 decimal places. Came on here to see if its possible but doesnt look like its happened??

    I am trying to convert from my MYOB18 version and it is a real pain as we have a situation where the boss tells someone what they will take home each week ... not their hourly rate. So most of the employees are not on a 2 decimal pay rate.

    Thanks for this feature, It is a greatly appreciated function. I know many people who have changed services because this functionality took so long and many others offer it. This will make a huge difference to our record keeping processes.

    Hi Everyone

    MYOB Essentials allows users to enter the Unit price of an item up to 6 decimal places.

    Please note: The Amount column will always be 2 decimal places.
