Specifying Currency Scale and Extended Scale Values
When defining currency, the Extended Scale field is used to specify the number of places after the decimal that are used to storing currency data in the database. If the values in the Extended Scale and Scale fields are different, results of currency calculations, for instance conversions or discounts, may be different than expected. For more information on defining currency, and the scale and extended scale fields, see Applications Administration Guide.
