Thanks for the reply, David.

The report displays on the screen as a 4 decimal value, however that 
value is rounded as if it is a 2 decimal place value.

For example:   if the value entered  is $45.6789 ,  it is immediately 
switched to $45.6800.   That becomes the new value and throws the fund 
value way off.
