This formula:
"Slope = "& (Sum ({@Slope-DrugCollections}, {'Drug_Collections_'.ClientCode}))

Give me this:
Slope = 0.00

I need this:
Slope = 0.001952381

What syntax do i use to allow for the field to display its many decimals.....?

Thanks
M

you would change the decimal places in the formatting of the field. Right click the field and pick format field. Click the number tab and pick customize.

The data for this formula::

@Slope-DrugCollections}

Looks like this:
0.001952381

BUT, when I place thie formula within a Formula it defaults to displaying like THIS:
0.00

SO....I need to know the SYNTAX to convert it to display multiple decimals...which is its true state.

If you haven't already figured this out, you need to use CStr/ToText so that you can specify the format, as in the solution to your other question (where you were trying to remove the decimals).

"Slope = "& CStr (Sum ({@Slope-DrugCollections}, {'Drug_Collections_'.ClientCode}), 9, "", ".")


 The 9 is the number of decimal places and the "." is the character used to separate the decimals from the rest of the number.
