Hi almond_uk ,

Do you need to truncate them? If you only need to display trucated values an alternative solution is to play with the format of forms and reports and keep the most exact value internally.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I can see the logic to your answer, but I wish it was as simple as adding a function (I have tried fix(), but in this case it would not have been appropriate)
