Textbox Decimal Places

I have the decimal places set to 3 on textboxes on my form but some of them still show more than 3 places. I even changed the fields they are bounded to to fixed format with 3 decimal. Now in the table these fields don't show the extra decimal places but the form still does.

For example: 10.6600000000001

How can I fix this?

On the form in those text boxes ... set the following properties:

Format:  Standard
Decimal Places:  2  or 3 or whatever you want.
