How do I get fractional (decimal) product quantities functional on the back end…

I don’t know if this is a programming question, or if it belongs in another forum…

We sell fabric through our online store, and we offer fractional quantity ordering for our customers.  For example, a customer can order 1.5 yds of flannel.  Although this works fine when the customer enters the order through the front end of the shopping cart, it does not work on the back end.  In attempting to edit orders today, each time I would update a fractional quantity like 1.5, it would revert back to 1.

Is it possible to fix this problem so I can get the fractional product quantities to show up on the back end orders?
