When entering dollar amounts on GIFI forms 100 and 125, Profile does not round all these numbers properly. e.g if the actual amount is between $x.01 and $x.49, then Profile rounds these numbers correctly 'down' to $x.00; but if the actual amount is between $x.50 and $x.99, Profile incorrectly also rounds these numbers 'down' to $x.00. Each year I call Profile to point this out and each year I am told that Profile is aware of the problem and it will be fixed, but the problem persists. Does anyone know of a 'work-around?'

Thanks,
Charlie

Yes, remove the cents before you import the GIFI. That is what our office does.
