Hi all,

I posted this before, but i think it wasn't the right forum.

Here is how to reproduce the bug:

- Create an invoice with a subtotal like 26,40.
- Apply to this subtotal 2 taxes, +21% and -19%

Data generated is:
Subtotal: 26,40
+21% tax: 5,54
-19% tax: 5,02

Total: 26,93 (WRONG, it should be 26,92)

For me this is a big problem. Generating incorrect invoices and having to edit the PDF manually is not supposed to be a feature of an invoice tool. Hope this bug isn't too hard to fix? Please fix it ASAP, thank you.

It's certainly a bug all those who use the invoicing tool need to be aware of, David. Even though it's a tiny amount in monetary terms, it would be embarrassing to have clients notice the discrepancy.

There's clearly some flawed code in the program which needs to be fixed. Raising a Support Ticket is normally the best way to request this type of change.

Thanks for your response Sheila.

Indeed is embarrassing, thankfully i noticed it before any client does. Actually i discovered it while checking my books, because Excel does the decimal rounding correctly, and i noticed a discrepancy with ProZ invoices.

I'll create a support ticket this evening when i have some free time.
