Similarly, I left yesterday with a customer reporting a tiny discrepancy (.00005%) between reports on a generated value. I initially wrote if off to rounding issue (a report(s) issue) but couldn't find the problem immediately. As I was stepping through code getting into the raw sql queries, I was called to supper. As I'm eating, I'm visualizing the query results and something seems off but I can't quite put my finger on it. Sleepy | :zzz:

Fast forward to this morning reading the paper and it hits me...why are they including 03's? Confused | :confused:
Sure enough, 48 of 50 sites include the 03's which should have been defaulted off for this customer. It's a rare thing to happen, (first time noted in 20+ years that I'm currently aware of) and likely only an issue for this one customer who dared to go against the grain, but you never know. The quick fix was passed on to the client and the application was corrected to do a better job figuring out how to handle missing (or default) records. (a self-adjusting default of sorts) I have the luxury of an end user providing sample reports with discrepancies marked, and competent enough to follow instructions on posting her database. Good testers users and good support tools are a blessing! Smile | :)

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
