XPath in XQuery:  Fractional Digits

I have an output XSD that looks like this

  <xs:simpleType name="Money">
    <xs:restriction base="xs:decimal">
         <xs:fractionDigits value="2"/>
     </xs:restriction>
  </xs:simpleType>

Open in new window


From this I use a statments

[cfn:sum($Accounts/in:IndividualAcct[in:AcctType = 'AttcRec']/in:balance * in:amount)

Open in new window


But my summation to a field defined witht the
definition above appears as:

36745.770000000004

Open in new window


What I want is for this to display only 2 fractional digits

So I am wondering, can I use something like a format-string or fn:string

If so, can I combine this with my previous fn:sum string listed above

What would that look like?

Thanks

you need format-number()

format-number(cfn:sum($Accounts/in:IndividualAcct[in:AcctType = 'AttcRec']/in:balance * in:amount), '0.00')
0
