Error description

  • Calculations may result in a very small number, but not zero.
    If this value is used as the denominator with the 'save divide'
    operator "\", the division will be done resulting in a very
    large number, instead of treating the very small calculated
    number as zero.??This is the issue expressed as the 'second' bug
    in COGCQ00793747.  This item is being created to separate the
    issue into its own request, since it will most likely get
    escalated.  See the data attached (second set) to that bug.
