I have a decimal number field that is rounding up to the nerest hundreth. for example the number displayed in the database (SQL 2000) is .1666666etc the formula in the report displays3 numbers but it rounds the hundedth place up so on the report it displays .167. I would like it not to round so it displays .166 but I also want .033 to be .033 and not round down. I have not had any luck with searches so far so I was hoping maybe someone here would be able to help me. The snippet has the formula being used to display the decimal numbers.
WhilePrintingRecords;
Shared StringVar TimeType;
NumberVar nSHours;
If not IsNull({vmainview.staff_time})
  then nSHours := Truncate({vmainview.staff_time});
If IsNull({vmainview.staff_time})
  then '0'
  else if TimeType = 'R'
           then ToText(nSHours,0) + ':' + Right('00' +ToText(( ({vmainview.staff_time} - nSHours ) * 60),0), 3 )
           else ToText({vmainview.staff_time},3)
