Create or Change Default Earnings: Invalid value for Special Rate. Value must be numeric

This error occurs when the user enters a Special Rate greater than $999.99. Even though the user enters all numeric digits, I.e. 1250, ePAF will change it to display as 1,250.000000. When user saves ePAF, they receive an error: “Invalid value for Special Rate. Value must be numeric.”

 
TO FIX THE ERROR : The user must remove the comma, then save and submit. It will re-display with the comma, but will allow you to submit.  
 
NOTE: This only works if this is the last entry the user saves before submitting; ePAF will keep changing the display to include the comma, and repeating the error until all other data has been saved and any other errors have been corrected.
