    Question Rounded Numbers

    Hello,


    I am entering latitude/longitude coordinates. I have both fields set for a fixed number format and manually set for 5 decimal places. For some reason the latitude number appears correctly, but the (negative) longitude value rounds up to the fourth decimal. I'd sure appreciate some ideas...
    Thank you!

    Your field type need to be Single or Double numeric fields. Is that the case?

    Aha! I had it set to Single, but changing it to Double did the trick. Thank you!
