Incorrect Split Amounts Post to GL When Posting Pledge

When a split pledge is saved with an amount that isn't evenly divisible by the number of installments, the amounts that post to each GL account are incorrect. 

This is resolved in 7.96, patch 12, released in July-August 2018 and applied to databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services. If your database is installed locally, download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable.

Steps to Duplicate

1.       Open a constituent record and select the Gifts tab
2.       Click New Gift
3.       Type: Pledge
4.       On the Gift Amount, enter $1100
5.       Click the Schedule button
6.       In the new Window, enter Monthly for the Frequency
7.       No. Installments: 12
8.       Click Distribute and click OK
9.       Select the Split Gift tab
10.   Search for a fund on the first row, Fund A - Enter $400
11.   Add a second fund, Fund B, on the new row and for the amount enter $700
12.   Save the gift
13.   From the gift's menu bar, select View> View GL Distribution
14.   If you total the payment amounts for Fund A (the 11 payments of $33.33 and 1 payment of $32.32) the total is $399.95, not $400 as designated on the split gift tab
15.   The total for Fund B on the GL Distribution is $700.05, not $700
