    Access Web field formating

    I have a query that calculates currency fields (qty*unit price kind of thing). When I display them in a summary display form, there is no formatting. Where can I specify the currency format? Because it is a calculated field, there is no way that I can find, to tell access to format as currency.

    Thanks,


    Merrikay

    I haven't used web databases but you can try:

    =format(<calculated value>, "Currency")

    as the record source of the field

    Thanks...I had tried that without the "" around Currency, but had gotten an invalid field name error. With the "" I get the value "Currency" in the field when I run the Query.

    How about "CCur(calc)"?

    Can you create another query that retrieves the Calculated Field first? So, your first query would have the necessary key values to retrieve the correct dataset and the calculated value. Use that first query as a subquery.

    Another function that you might want to consider is FormatCurrency()

    Thank you everyone. This must be a Web App thing. I know that it is not the full version of Access.

    CCur(calc) gives me a "Function name that Microsoft Access can't find" message. FormatCurrency() gives me the same message.

    Anyone out there who is an expert on the Web App?

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
