Project Pro 2010: 90 000 000 Cost field issue ?

Hi Guys,

We have come across something very strange if we enter the Amount "90 000 000" in a cost field in Project Pro it rounds it off to "89 999 994,88" !! I find that very strange. As a matter of fact all my tests with amounts between 90 000 000 and 100 000 000 seem to be rounding.

You may ask why that large amounts ? One of our clients are a mining house and the get to that amount in South African rand.

I will log a call with Microsoft and revert once I have feedback. If any of you guys have any ideas please use the "Comment" to give your suggestions.

Windows8 and Project Server 2010: IE incorrect version.


When trying to open my Timesheet using IE 10, which ships with Windows 8, I ran into the issue below. Note that the Landing Page displays correctly but when navigating to the Project Center or Timesheets it gives the error.

In my opinion this is one of "those" ill written errors , because I am ALREADY using a version higher than the minimum IE7 that it requires.

I am sure on future updates it will be fixed though.

Work Around:

With IE open click on the settings icon, then Click on the "F12 Developer Tools". At the top of the Browser window there you will see an option "Browser Mode", it should have defaulted to IE10. Click on the option and select IE9. Some other people stated that IE10 Compatibility have worked for them as well, for me it did not.

You can then close the Developer Window and navigate to your timesheet. Everything should be working now.

A last item I would like to point out is that the compatibility settings as specified above is not saved. So once you close and re-open IE, you will have to set compatibility again
