Thank you, but not really.  The query that creates the table is written in VBA, not a query in the query grid so I need to make the alteration in VBA.

The decimal set to 2 doesn't actually change the value of the column, it only changes whats displayed.

Sorry I took so long to get back.  Someone in the other building had a "problem" that needed to be addressed.  In otherwords - upper management wanted babysitting.

thebrednetwork, I checked the link out and that is exactly what I was looking for.  I created a procedure to call this and when it returns to the next command, the table is how I want it.  Thank you.

thank you also jmoss111 for your comment.
