European (German) number formatting
Hello, we are developing a PB65 application using PFC and Cornerstone running on NT.

Bug : Loosing decimal places on European number format in PB7

For datawindow columns representing decimal numbers we would like to use the Euopean formatting, that is a comma as a decimal delimiter and a period is representing thousand. When you type in 123,45 only 123,00 is represented in de datafield when you leave the field. The problem only occurs when you have fields of data type 'float' ( double ). For fields of type 'real ' the reaction is correct. Early versions of pb65 had the same problem for fields of type 'r...

Formatting a decimal to 2 decimal places
Hi - just testing some code, and the code below returns a number with 3 decimal places (eg. 450.000). Will returning a decimal always give 3 decimal places, and if so, how can I remove the last one? I don't want to use: Return String.Format("{0:C}", decRunningTotal) - as that will automatically add a $ or £ or whatever to the start, and I'd like to control that. I'd really appreciate any help, thanks, Mark Function GetItemTotal() As String objDT = Session("Cart") Dim intCounter As Integer Dim decRunningTotal As Deci...
