Welcome to IWETHEY!

New You *order* integer quantities, but stock on hand is fractional
Someone building the UI today would (obviously, I hope) not require entering the ".00" every time, but weren't greenscreen apps much more closely tied to the underlying data?

New My recollection is that it was a funky program.
I would often end up with totals that exceeded the listed stock in the warehouse. (Negative warehouse totals resulted.) It didn't seem to matter - I was told to ignore it. I gathered that whoever was in charge of ordering stuff for the warehouse had some different way of keeping track of what was needed and when (but it sorta made what I was doing kinda pointless as far as that goes).

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Programs are weird sometimes. :-)

Cheers,
Scott.

Now that's what I call self-defecating humor.
