Error Value cannot be displayed in FACTS reports with Numbers in the Billions after upgrading to 14.60

After upgrading to 14.60, numbers in the billions cannot be displayed in FACTS reports, specifically the Pool Allocation Processing\Pool Processing Report which is the report that comes up after clicking Allocate, the  FACTS Allocations Edit Report and the Post FACTS Edit report.
Any further work regarding billions or tens of billions issues in FIMS will not be addressed. This is due to the fact that in FE NXT that issues with large digit display will not occur as we see in FIMS. This year, 2018, development is working on integrating the FIMS Investment Management and Spending Policy features into Financial Edge NXT.


Steps to Duplicate

7. Click on Run Unitization Report from this report, and note that the unitization report does not have these messages and figures in the billions display correctly.
