Work Status Validate and Data Manager Lock


This is a 2 part question... I have setup my work status settings so that only the Owner can unlock and lock the DM, JRN, MAN, COMM, and DOCS.

1. The lock prevents users from altering data through input schedules, however, data manager packages can still be run. Is there some logic we can add to all of the packages to check whether there is a lock in place or not?

2. In the application parameters, there is a work status validation option, we have set it to "YES" and listed the member validation in Work status settings to "BalSht".

When we try to change the work status, we are prompted with an error that says "The data did not pass validation because the validation account does not equal zero. Correct the data and resubmit."

I looked further into this issue and saw that our BalSht (balance sheet) is not absolute zero but has some residual rounding at the 6th or 7th decimal place. Is there a way to have the work status validate option check only 2 decimals?

Thank you for your time and help,
