I have an unbound txtbox in which the Decimal Place Property is set as 2; however, calculated results are shown with decimal places being more than two.  Your thoughts?

IN design mode, select properties, click on the Format tab, and the first Field on the tab is also called Format.

Change or select Fixed from the Drop Down List. I will verify the Number format when I get to work.

I think the decinmal place is only going to work for bound controls, you could force the correct display using the Format property
