True DBGrid number format

Hello there

  I recently downloaded the True DBGrid Standard from the Apex Site.
  The problem I have is that I can't make the DBGrid force the values in certain cells to be displayed with 2 decimal places. If the value is entered with decimal places, it is displayed with them, otherwise, it is not. I already tryed to specify, in the DBGrid properties, the format for the values, but it still doesn't work. If I browse my table, with MS
Access, the values are displayed correctly, but not in the True DBGrid.

  Am I doing something wrong?
  How am I supposed to do it?

Have you tried to set the format of the column object to "0.00"?  This should force 2 decimal places to be displayed.  It does with my True DBGrid (Pro).

It still doesn't work.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I've already tryed to format the cell in  design and in run time mode. Any other ideas?
Thanks...

I assume you are talking about formatting of data you read off a database.

As far as I know, you do not format a CELL, you must format a column.
Use the NumberFormat property of the COLUMN object:

DataGrid1.Columns(j).NumberFormat = "###0.00"

It still doesn't work. I don't know if I am doing it the right way. To populate the Grid I'm using a Data Control. Where Am I supposed to put that instruction?
