    I just searched and found another post that covers my issue. I have several
    large database tables that have suddenly rounded all dollar amount to 0
    decimals, even though the settings for the fields have not been changed from
    double, 2 decimals. The file is in Access 2000 Format, and I have checked in
    both Access 2002 and 2003 and the decimals are gone. The tables involved are
    over 300,000 rows of data and are for 1 year periods with daily downloads, so
    redoing is a daunting option. I may be able to restore the tables, but what
    precautions should I take to prevent this from happening again? Is there a
    glitch?

    If they are dollar amounts, you should have the data type set to Currency.
    Maybe the format too.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
