# Wrong amount in calculation in ABAP code.

Dear Friends,

Here i am facing one issue on ABAP multiplication code.

for your reference you can see below.

code is:

it_ekpo-netwr = 741.67

dkwert = 10.00

g_excise1 = ( it_ekpo-netwr / 100 ) * dkwert.

when i execute above line the answer should come g_excise1 = 74.20 but instead of 74.20 answer coming 7420.00.

.actually all the variables are same data types. kindly anyone suggest me what is the reason behind this? above program type is executable program.

but another program ( Type Subroutine pool ) same logic and same block is working well. only Program type is difference.

Regards,

Thangam.P

Hi Perumal,

Check you program attributes->**Fixed point Arithmetic **Check box should be checked otherwise the calculations will not be accurate.

I tried an example like below.

**Case1 :** **Fixed point Arithmetic** Checked

data : lv_netwr TYPE BPREI VALUE '741.67'.

DATA : lv_drk TYPE BPREI VALUE '10.00'.

DATA : lv_val TYPE BPREI.

lv_val = ( lv_netwr / 100 ) * lv_drk.

WRITE : / lv_val.

**OUTPUT : 74.17**

**Case2 : Fixed point Arithmetic** UnChecked

**OUTPUT : 7,420.00**

Once check and revert.
