I have a data access page that used boundspans to refernce a database. The data has decimals and want to set the boundspan to a fixed format with no decimals but cant figure out how. I have the format set to fixed for the boundspan but cant find where it lets me choose how many decimal point to show. Anybody have any ideas?

If you don't want decimals,  set the format to General Number
you can also set the decimal places using a formatNumber statement in the controlsource property:

= formatnumber(x,0)
= formatnumber(x,3)

thanks for the replies, I didnt notice until just now that both replies were from the same expert! doh! anyway the general number didnt seem to work, but the second one worked like a charm. I may have not done the general number thing right, but I like the formatnumber solution better anyhow, thanks alot.
Glad to help!
