    I cannot get the number in a Combo Box to display as it appears in my
    Query/Table. Example Query Table displays a number value 12.5, the Combo Box
    in my Form displays 12.0

    How can I have the Combo Box display exactly what is in the Query/Table?

    Hi Roger

    You prob have your number field set to long intteger
    - this will not hold decimals so :-


    In your table set the field containing the number ike this
    Field Size - Double
    Format - Genral Number
    Decima - Auto




    Hope this helps

    Check the format and decimal places properties of the control.

    Sounds like you have it set as Fixed (or Standard), 0 respectively.

    Change the decimal places to Auto.
