Why does addcoltotals not display decimal totals?

Hello,
I've noticed that the addcoltotals command doesn't display decimals if the total contains a decimal. Run anywhere code:

| makeresults
| eval decimal = 1.5
| eval whole = 1.5
| append [ | makeresults
| eval decimal = 1
| eval whole = 1.5]
| addcoltotals

I'm using Splunk 6.4.1 and my results are:

decimal,whole
1.5,1.5
1,1.5
2,3.0 (here it truncates to a single decimal place for the decimal field)

Is there something I'm missing?
Regards,
Andrew

hi @andrewtrobec

try like this

| makeresults
 | eval decimal = 1.5
 | eval whole = 1.5
 | append [ | makeresults
 | eval decimal = 1
 | eval whole = 1.5]
 |eval decimal=round(decimal,2)  |eval whole=round(whole,2) |addcoltotals

It looks like addcoltotals is using the lowest level of precision of the values it's adding. Since '1' has zero digits of precision, that's what is used for the result.
