    Default report calcu field decimal

    I am trying to figure out how to set decimals to 2 places.
    in creating a new report the "Properties" is on the side and I cannot find the formatting for the decimals.
    what am i missing?

    If you see " the "Properties" is on the side " you are probably looking at the dynamic properties toolbar. You can set individual field static formats by selecting an object, right click, choose Properties, select the Format tab.
    There can be only one.

    when choosing the bottom method is when I can't access the Properties the old fashion way.

    You have selected the new fashioned layout table report so you get the new fashioned properties options. The free form report still allows the old fashioned formatting options.

    I kind of like the new fashioned layout except I couldn't find the decimals. Now I know better
    I would right click and select "Properties" and it would only let me use the properties on the side so I went round and round with that for a while. so now I select "edit cell content"

    Thanks!
