Floating numbers are stored in dynamics as integer

When I create a record in dynamics, and I put a value in one of the fields of type currency, and the value has decimal number, it is saved as a whole ignoring the decimal, for example if I keep the value: 37.75, in dynamics it appears $ 3775.00.

I have already tried changing 37.75 to 37.75, using the replace to change the "." for the "," and the same thing keeps happening.

The problem field is "Coste estimado" which is currency type in dynamics.




For testing I have also tried putting in this field "Coste Estimado" 3745 divided by 100, in dynamics should appear $ 37.45, however it appears $ 3745.00.


The same thing happens to me when updating or creating any field of type float or currency in dynamics from FLOW


Please any ideas on how to solve the problem?

Hi @Yruiz,


Which entity are you using? Please share a full screenshot of your flow.

I am trying to reproduce this issue on my side.

Re: Floating numbers are stored in dynamics as integer

Hello and apologize for the delay in my response.
I have reproduced and documented the error step by step to explain myself better.
In the entity cases I have added a field of type Currency called "example":



I created this example FLOW:



In which I initialize a variable of floating type, with the value 13.21. 
Then I updated the field "example" with the value of the variable.





The problem is that when I update the field "example" created in 
dynamics the logical and correct is that I put 13.21 $ however it puts 1321.00 $




I did a replace of "." By "," in the FLOW and the result is exactly the same.
This time initialize the variable with the value: 16.82





And the result is incorrect again:




I have also tried converting the value in dynamics to floating number, to decimal number. 
I have also tried converting the number in FLOW to float,
I have also tried changing the language of my dynamics and the format
of number and currencies of the dynamics, changing from "," to ".",
But the same thing is still happening.
