How do I make the format of a text-type field match that of a number-type field in Access?
Posted on 2011-09-16
I have created a database where I load a spreadsheet full of information into a single table. One of the fields is called Dollar_Value and holds various amounts but the data type is text rather than number. When I run a query on this table the format of the Dollar_Value field is not like that of the number-type fields, "0,000". Other than changing the data type how else can I change the format of the Dollar_Value field so that it matches that of the number-type fields?
