    I have 4 number fields that is formatted to currency with 2 decimal places. When I key in a dollar amount it is rounding the numbers. How do I get it to not round up or down?

    Right click on the cell, then format cells. You can change the setting there.

    Ive done that. Ive changed the format to currency and Ive changed the decimal places to 2 but it still rounds the number. Is there something I am missing?

    Sorry I figured out what it was. Access defaults the format in the table as a Long Interger. All I had to do was change it to "double" or "single" and it fixed the issue. Thanks
