And I'm trying to import them into a table but no matter what format I set that field up in the Access table it ends up looking like:


I need to import and show the decimals.  What am I doing wrong?

What data type did you declare in the table for that field?
Long Integer is the default numeric data type.  Depending on what precision you need and how large the values will be you might use single, double, or currency.

I always use Currency  if I don't need more than four decimal digits since it avoids floating point errors which can be a problem with single and double.  Don't confuse the Currency data type with the Currency format.  The currency format is simply a scaled integer that always has 4 decimal places although you can set the display to fewer if you want.
