Decimal places in calculated field

Hi

I have a couple of calculated fields in a report, i've set the Decimal
Places property to 0 and the format to General Number, however when
previewing the report it still comes up with a number with up to 8
decimal places!

Any suggestions how to overcome this problem gratefully received!

Try setting the Format to Fixed instead of General.

You don't want to see any decimals?
Set the Format property to Fixed (NOT General Number)
Set the Decimal Places property to 0.

I have a database field that is the product of a multiply in a sql statement and it sometimes has 5 or more decimal places. I want to truncate beyond the 2nd decimal place(###.##). I figured a Ctype to a decimal value would do that but the four decimal places remain. I found a truncate function but it only truncates to whole numbers. how can I do the truncation? Thanks, G

Hello, I'm running Access 2000. I would like to know if its possible to use VBA code to determine how many decimal places are specified for each table field.

I just want to make a list of the decimal place setting for each "Single" field in

I have a field set to 1 decimal place in the table definition. I have a textbox bound to the field also set to 1 decimal place. Why can I enter the number 1.57 in the textbox, and this becomes stored in the table as well ? Do I have to use a input mask to stop this ? Thanks

I have noticed this over many versions of Access and was wondering if anyone could throw any light on why this seems to happen. It seems that when designing a QueryDef in the QBE grid and specifying the Properties of an individual numeric field, the Decimal Places property is often invisible. From observation this seems to occur when the Field: is set to a calculation of some form (rather than a simple field from one of the TableDefs). ...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
