writing decimals back to an access database

1 New Member
help, I am trying to update a field on my database and cant seem to get the right value stored

eg on reading the database field i get the values I need such as 31.24, 3.15 and 16.00 and I use these in the web application successfully but when I come to write these values back to the database I cant write the decimals.

when I write these values back using the code
RecordSet("pric e") = intprice

I get 16.00 and 3124.00 and 315.00

I have tried changing the field in access to currency, long integer and double to no affect.

I have a database that I regularly import data into from a text file. The text file is produced by payroll software, and it is always the same format. Most of the time my acImportDelim command works fine, but occasionally (less than 10%) it will not import decimals. For instance, a value of 7.6 in the text file is imported into my table as 7. This is driving me crazy as I can't understand why it does this intermittently. I've...

I have a problem with the decimals in a report I created in Access Database. In a table I have two fields. One is the "price" the second one is "quantity".

Example: 914,539.00 * $50.21, the result must be $45,919,003.19, however the report will shows always a wrong result of $45,919,002.35. I already tried to change...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
