Reduce number of decimals

Hi, i'm new to powerapps. I have created a sharepointlist and a mobile app for a field service employee. I just want to reduce the number of decimals in the <totaal materiaalkosten> field to 2. I've tried the round & text functions but it did not do the job. Any suggestions ? In the sharepoint list it's a calculated field currency format (euro) and 2 decimals. Screenshot below. Thanks for help. Gert

@GertB Can you please share the formulas you tried so far? It will be easier for us to look at formula and answer your question more precisely.

 

However, you can try any of the below formula for this:

 

Round(Value(Parent.Default),2)

 

OR

 

Text(Value(Parent.Default),"[$-en-US]#.0")

 

OR

 

Text(Value(Parent.Default), "#.00")

Hi Gert,

For additional info, this is a known issue with SharePoint calculated fields. There are more details in this post here.

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/change-the-number-of-decimals-for-a-number/m...

Hopefully, you can solve this by incorporating the round and value functions like so.

Round(
      Value(ThisItem.'totaal materiaalkosten'),
      2
)

Hi,

 

Thanks for the quick reply.  The following formula worked fine for the Tijd (in uren) field (2,5 => 2,50), but nog for the totaal materiaalkosten (4,57 => 4570000000000,00) => 2 decimals but a lot of extra zero's before the comma).

Text(Value(Parent.Default);"[$-en-US]#.00")

I've tried the other formula's, but they all had the same effect.  

I've tried this formula too.

Round(
      Value(ThisItem.'totaal materiaalkosten'),
      2
)

Unfortunately does not do the job.
