Why does my Access DB number column show up as integers as opposed to currency type value?

I am trying to insert data into my Access database but for some reason, it is not working out.  If I insert a value with two decimal places after the period, it shows up in the table as just a integer value number without the decimal values.  I do have the column as a number and set to two decimal places, I am just wondering what the deal is.  Please let me know.  Thanks!
