Access ADP Report fields won't format

I have been tasked with maintaining an existing access ADP file with SQL server 2005 backend.

The client wants a new report.  I have created a temp table in SQL Server and filled it with the appropriate data, which is then summarized with a view in SQL Server.

On the access side, when I link the report to the view, the fields won't format.  I have the format set to standard with 0 decimal places which should be 1,234 but the report shows 1234.

Also on the report I have line total fields which are formatted the same, but actually show 1,234.

Any help or guidance would be great, thanks.

Check to make sure that you are using a numeric data type in your temp table.

Absent that, I have had the same problems with views.

In your Access report, in the field you would like to format, use the following syntax when referencing the field in the Control Source property for the text box:

=CDbl(FieldName)

I hope that this helps.

The fields were numeric; the =cdbl([FieldName]) did the job beautifully.  Thanks!
