Do you want the values aligned at the decimal point?

 If you use the usual right alignment and simply remove the decimals, you end up with values like this:

   1
   2
3.50
   4
5.25
   6

Open in new window


Also, do you want to always display 2 decimal places on non-integers, or only display the required number of places?  For example, should 3.5 be shown as 3.50, or just 3.5 ?

 If you want to always display 2 decimal places on non-integers, you can go to the field format, click Customize on the Number tab, click the formula (X+2) button beside Decimals and enter this formula:

if CurrentFieldValue = Truncate (CurrentFieldValue) then
  0
else
  2


 Rounding would presumably be set to 2 places.  You could use the same formula for Rounding, but it doesn't seem necessary, since you're only hiding the decimals when they're 0.

Try this one
Right click the field
Click FORMAT FIELD
Click the NUMBER TAB
CLick the formula button to the right of Decimals
Enter this formula
If {YourFIeld} = Round ({YourFIeld}) then
   0
Else If {YourFIeld} = Round ({YourFIeld},1) then
   1
Else If {YourFIeld} = Round ({YourFIeld},2) then
   2
Else
   3

Click OK
Set Rounding to 0.001

I'm assuming that that was in response to mlmcc's post.

 It's the same button that I mentioned.  On the Number tab you have to click Customize (mlmcc left that step out), and there's a setting there for Decimals, with a formula (X+2) button beside it.
