Hi friends,

I'm facing a problem on float subtraction.When subtracting value of 10000.00 from 10000.00 we supposed to get 0, but here in openerp i get a balance value of

-1.81898940355e-12 when displaying balance using below code:


here, i have used a line of code for setting up 2 digits after decimal(like 123.00), i have given a line of code which i used to display:

lin_bal=bal if bal!=0.00 else 0.00 

lin_deci_bal= "%0.2f" % lin_bal

it displays output as -0.00,instead i need output as 0.00

So please suggest some solution to resolve this problem. I have taken lot of time working on this issues. Kindly help me solve this.Thanks in advance.
