Dear Experts,
I have a report generated to create invoices. I need to take in parameters from text fields in vb6 to that report. I encountered a problem when I try to pass the value in a text field containing the prices for the items. I set up the fields in crystal to be currency but whenever i pass the value of my text field in my vb6, it will come up with strange values. (eg, when the value of my text box is 100,000, crystal will only show 100,00). I tried passing my textbox value using
val(textbox.text) in vb6 but if i use this, crystal won't accept it. Any ideas experts?

thank you...
btw, im using CR8.5

canyou try to send without any formatting for the number. can you also try declaring the variable as single/double and then pass the varaible.
also verify that the datatype supports the precision level. maybe you defined the database field as number(4) and you are trying to pass a value that is number(5).
