Dear Experts,

I have a report in my company where a part of a formula looks like; ........[Fixed_currency]<1e-7;[Local Opportunity Amount].........

I can't find out, anywhere, what "1e-7" does here, what does it mean?

Thank you!!

ps for Admin - I cannot find the "business objects" zone either when posting this question, where is it please?

1e-7 is scientific/exponential notation for
1 x 10 ^ -7
Okay, maybe even that formula is cryptic.
It means 1 divided by 10 to the 7th power.
Normally 1e3 means 10 to the 3rd power, aka 1 thousand.  But the negative means you divide instead.

So it is really 0.0000001
