This will often happen when you have your numeric precision set high -- you
can change the precision in the Edit Properties -> Number tabfolder for the
relevant object.  Please note that on a computer floating-point values are in
binary and often are not an exact duplicate of a decimal number ... this is
more visible on VEE than on non-visual programming languages.

However, I can't duplicate what you are seeing here, at least not precisely.
What version of VEE are you using?  Could I see an example?

No application, but if the computer is part of a remote file system then a
remote directory is effectively the same as a local one and VEE knows no

Not that we know of.  I will copy the VEE user forum on this to see if anyone
has tried it.
