Hello:

I have the following formula in Crystal Reports:

if {IV00101.USCATVLS_5} = "" then

0

else

(Cdbl({IV00101.USCATVLS_5})*1.0)/2.2046

This results in .13. I need it to result in .127 (i.e. no rounding).

How do I accomplish this?

Thanks!

Have you formatted it to show more than 1 decimal?

Right click the field

Click FORMAT FIELD

Click the NUMBER tab

Choose the format you want or click customize

Set decimals to 2 and rounding to .01

FWIW, you could eliminate the test for "" if you use Val, instead of CDbl. Val converts any leading numeric characters in a string to a number. For example, Val ("123abc456") would give you 123. For an empty string (""), you'd get 0. So, your formula could be just one line:

(Val({IV00101.USCATVLS_5})

(Cdbl(".28")*1.0)/2.2046

If you try that formula, what result do you get?

Just to make sure, if you're using the "Customize" option in the field format, make sure you set both "Decimals" and "Rounding".

Have you tried

if {IV00101.USCATVLS_5} = "" then

0

else

(Cdbl({IV00101.USCATVLS_5}

or

if {IV00101.USCATVLS_5} = "" then

0

else

Cdbl({IV00101.USCATVLS_5})

If you go to the field format and select the Number tab, there is a Customize button. If you click on that, you can set the "Decimals" (number of digits displayed to the right of the decimal point) and "Rounding" (significant digits to the right of the decimal point). What I was saying in my last post was that you need to set both of those. For example, if you set Decimals to 1.000 (3 places), but leave Rounding set to 0.01 (2 places), .127 would be displayed as 0.130, because the field is set to show 3 decimal places, but it's also set to round to 2.

There are some predefined formatting options with 4 decimal places. You might try one of those first, like -1123.0000 . If the other decimal places show up, then you can use Customize and change both the Decimals and Rounding settings to 3 decimal places.

James

You included a formula in your first post. We (I think I can speak for mlmcc on this) have been assuming that you created a formula in the report that contains only the lines in the formula in your first post, and then you put that formula on the report, and the value that was displayed on the report appeared to be rounded.

But if there is no Number tab in the field format window, then that field is not numeric, but result of the formula that you posted _is_ numeric. So either you're looking at the format for a different field, or there is more to your formula than what you posted here. If you're looking at a different field, how is it related to the formula that you posted? If there is more to your formula, can we see the rest of it?

James

Perhaps the formula is being used in another formula for display.

mlmcc

"Unit Weight: " & CStr({@Unit Weight},3) & " "& CStr({@pounds and kilos},3)

The 3 is the number of decimals to use

You can also use a format string

"Unit Weight: " & CStr({@Unit Weight},"0.000" & " " & CStr({@pounds and kilos},"0.000")
