    I'm a beginner with Access. I have created a table. In Table Design
    View.....Data Type =number, format=standard, decimal places=1. I will be
    adding several entries, hence the choice of number as data type. On the
    form, the entry is rounded, no decimal places. All field controls in Form
    Design View are the same as in the Table Design View. I want 18.5 to be
    displayed as 18.5, 7.3 to be 7.3, etc., etc. With correct summation for the
    answer. Can this rounding be stopped?

    If the type of the field is Long or Integer that will round the number,
    change it to Double or Single

    If I answered your question, please mark it as an answer. That way, it will
    stay saved for a longer time, so other can benifit from it.

    Good luck

    Try changing Field Size to Decimal and Scale to 1.
