APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Prior to 19.0.2, when you edited a cell with a very small value
    (typically < 0.000001), we would display the value in scientific
    notation (1E-8 in this case).  Now we just show ".000000".  If
    you change the format of the cell to show more decimals, the
    displayed value is correct, but it still shows all zeros when
    you edit it.
