    Tableau is not performing a calculation correctly

    J Shap

      I am doing a simple calculation in tableau.  all I am doing it dividing one metric by another.  tableau is creating some strange rounding error.

       

      for example when I divide 3 by 5 I should get .6 but Tableau is giving me  0.600000023841857.

       

      I am using an extract using a SAS data set.

       

      is this a know issue when using extracts created with a SAS dataset?

       

      when I build an extract from an excel spread sheet I do not get the same rounding errors.

       

      Thanks
