Rounding error.

Rounding error.

I am using V5R12. When I give a dimension it rounds of to 3 decimal places like if i put 1.65485 it rounds of to 1.655, can any one help me overcome this problem.

RE: Rounding error.

You just need to adjust your settings in the tools options menu.
Tools - Options
In the left hand menu tree select Parameters and Measure under the General branch.
The right hand tab window section has a number of tab icons scroll across to the final tab entitled Units. The last entry on the window is;-
Decimal places fro read/write numbers and adust the value to the required amount.
Note 8 D.P. ensures that values cut and paste between entry fields without losing any accuracy.
