Decimal places and Currency

Hi all,

I am struggling to get two decimal places to show in my datatable.  I stuck a label in over to the right that has Text(Sum(expense,Estimated),"[$-en-US]#,##0.00") and notice that it shows $12.50 which is how I want it to display.  However, in the datatable under "Estimated Expense", it shows $12.5 instead of $12.50.  I tried setting the Items value of the datatable to AddColumns(expense,"calcfield",Text(EstimatedDatacard.Text,"[$-en-US]#,##0.00")) but I must have it wrong as the added column is completely empty. 

"EstimatedDatacard" is the inputbox under "Estimated Expense" which is set to a "Number" format.

Any ideas?

Re: Decimal places and Currency

Right now there is no way to apply formatting directly to a data table column.  But you can use AddColumns to add pre-formatted fields to the datasource or collection you are passing to a data table.  Here's a Blog that shows how to do it.
