Overriding Numeric columns displaying a leading asterisk


(Simon Hall) #1

Hello,
I’ve tried using extended properties, as well as using the extended properties wizard through the customization. Is there any way in ensuring a numeric field in the grid does not display a leading asterisk (apart from clicking on the field). Like below.

Thanks

The asterisk is showing that it’s a rounded value. I think you can either change the grid to show the 5 decimals, or figure out a way to change the calculation so that it only calculates to 2 decimal places.

Exactly. It really needs to show 4 decimals, I’ve already tried altering the mask on the extended properties of the field and on the grid field with no luck.

Is this a situation where you may need to "Go Native’ and override the property on the form load? I guess really what is the property that needs to be changed to affect it is the right question.
