Heres my code:
outFile << left << setw(12) << database.Record1.id
                  << setw(20) << database.Record1.lastAmount
                  << setw(15) << database.Record1.transCount
            << "$" << setprecision(2) << database.Record1.total << endl;

database.Record1.total is a double and i want it to output like $90.77


this is what I get:
300         30.77               3              $91


does anyone know why this happens?
