Just curious if any of you guys have ever noted discrepancies in the billing amounts on the invoices Oracle sends your company?

We had an itemized invoice from Oracle and one of our managers actually added every line item and discovered that the "TOTAL" amount that Oracle calculated was different than the individual line item amounts.  The difference was only a penny or two difference.  Now we get to hear all kinds of "Oracle Math" jokes around the office.
