Does anyone know why numbers on a report would come out different than the numbers in a table?

For example, the table is set up to show 35 as $35.00. On the report it comes out as 35 (no dollar sign or .00).

Any reason?

The report doesn't know that it is a currency field unless you specifically have it set in the table as such. Otherwise you have to specify in the report the format you want to see.

You need to format it in the report too.
Double-click the control to get to its properties and go to the Format tab and change it.

Why do they do that?
'Cause you might want your system to show mm/dd/yyyy, but you want a letter to show mmmm d, yyyy
