Are you using the most current release of QuoteWerks?
Version 5.5 Build 1
Issue:

When creating an opportunity in ACT! 2005/2006/2007/2008, you receive the following error (or similar):

"The creation of the ACT! sales opportunity failed!
Parameter USER 1 failed to set its value to type Decimal."




Some similiar errors received are:

"Parameter USER 2 failed to set its value to type Decimal."
"Parameter USER 3 failed to set its value to type Decimal."
"Parameter USER 4 failed to set its value to type Decimal."
"Parameter USER 5 failed to set its value to type Decimal."
"Parameter USER 6 failed to set its value to type Decimal."
"Parameter USER 7 failed to set its value to type Decimal."
"Parameter USER 8 failed to set its value to type Decimal."


Cause:

Using the ACT! Tools|Define fields menu, you have changed the field type of one of the user defined fields in the opportunity table to a field type other than "Character". Sage confirms this is a bug in the ACT! 2005/2006/2007/20
