# Decimal places in a calculated Text Box

H

#### Hoopster

Hey guys,

It's been some time since I have had to come to the Community because
of a problem but I have run into a bit of a puzzler.
I am trying to get the Average Width and Length to print out on an
Access Report desplaying four decimal places. The user Form saves the
width/length to the table just fine, (four decimal places). My Query displays
the Cells as four decimal places as well. The problem occurs on my Report.
For example, I am using the following in the Control Source of the Text Box,
=Min(Nz([MinWidth])). I have the Format set to Fixed and the Decimal Places
set to 4. If the average MinWidth is 48.000 for example, my Report shows 48
Hows come I can't get this to display with four decimal places?

Hi is it true that if you put true or false the access 2000 system gets
confused

Try this:

=Min(Nz([MinWidth], "0.0000")).

Show us the SQL statement of the query that is the report's RecordSource.

If you want trailing zeroes for a whole number, you have to set the format
property of the control (if the control is bound to the field and nothing
else) or you have to use a format function to turn the number into a string.

=Min(Nz([MinWidth],0)

You can either do
=Format(Min(Nz([MinWidth],0),"#,##0.0000")

I suspect the problem is that Min(Nz([MindWidth])) is returning a STRING since
you failed to specify that you wanted zero returned.

Sorry John,

Struck out again. When I tried =Min(Nz([MinWidth],0), I recieved the
Error telling me I was missing a closing parenthesis. When I inserted the
parenthesis I recived the Error Message "The expression you entered has a
funtion containing the wrong number of arguments". I recieved the same error
when I used =Format(Min(Nz([MinWidth],0),"#,##0.0000").
The controls in my Table are set up as Fixed using 4 decimal places.
The same is true of the columns in my Query as well as the controls in my
Report.

Well, we did miss closing parens.

=Min(Nz([MinWidth],0))

You can either do
=Format(Min(Nz([MinWidth],0)),"#,##0.0000")

John,

I had tried both of these before but though I would try
=Format(Min(Nz([MaxWidth],0)),'#,##0.0000') again only changing the " around
the Format to '. This works fine. Thanks for all your help.
