Decimal places in calculated field

P: n/a
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.
