The control stores decimal numbers as binary values. As a result, numbers stored in variables can be off by 1 least significant digit. For example, the number 7 stored in macro variable #10000, may later be read as 7.000001, 7.000000, or 6.999999. If your statement was

IF [#10000 EQ 7]… ;

it may give a false reading. A safer way of programming this would be

IF [ROUND [#10000] EQ 7]… ;

This issue is usually a problem only when you store integers in macro variables where you do not expect to see a fractional part later.
