    Number Filed in Form auto round

    Hi all,
    I have a form based on a table. There's a field in the table which is set to number, I have a text box in the form for entering this data.
    But when I enter 1.3, it automatically round to 1 when I changed the focus to another field.


    Can anyone figure out what I'm doing wrong?

    I tried that but it's still the same.
    The field size was set to Long, would that be the problem?
    I also tried to enter the data in the table directly, it's the same.

    I found what's wrong.
    The format property should be set to standard.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Long is Integer only. In order to hold a decimal value you would need to use one of the DataTypes that can hold a decimal value: Single, Double, Currency.

    There is so much more to learn from our mistakes than our successes.
