hi waipahu,

i wonder, because is a field in a table of typ numeric, then there becomes the rightjustify automatically.

you can adjust the allignment of the colums with the colum-editor, which comes up by doubleclicking the grid, add there all fields (table must be open in this case), select the field you want to modify, in the objectinspector set the allignment you want.

hi ronit,

fieldbyname is not available in dbgrids

to set it in runtime use

  dbgrid1.fields[indexofthefield].alignment := tarightjustify;

Thanks for the help. It works...i just specified it as right justified.
I have another problem...formating the numeric field to display 2 digits after
the decimal point:

22.50 displays as 22.5

Using borland's DBE it will work, however using TOPAZ i dont know how
to format the numeric field as 99.99

anyone have any ideas?
