Decimal Problem


A

Avaya

Hi
My report is based on the following expression in my query in one of the
text box:

Balance: Format$(nz(([sumofpoamt]-[paidnet]),[sumofpoamt]),"$0.00")

This works fine but when I added another text box to sum the total, Access
ignore the decimal number. For example:

8.00
9.00
6.25

Access display 23.00 instead of 23.25

This text box record source =sum(clng([balance]))

How can I get Access to display the correct calculation?

Thank you for your help.

Try using CCur instead of CLng.

Clng returns integers (no decimal portion).

Thank you Allen for replying to my post.

I used the iif() and now it displayed the numbers correctly.

The problem here is to do with data types.
Format() creates a string, which doesn't sum correctly.

Try something like this:
Balance: IIf((([sumofpoamt] Is Null, 0, [sumofpoamt])
- IIf([paidnet] Is Null, 0, [paidnet])
