This Note points out a minor error in a technique developed by Soyster and Level (Soyster, A. L., B. Lev. 1978. An interpretation of fractional objectives in goal programming as related to papers by Awerbuch et al., and Hannan. Management Sci. 24 (14) 1546--1549.) for determining if a linear goal can be substituted for a fractional goal in a goal programming problem. A revised formulation is provided.
