    Default Question on why extra decimal places

    I have a table with certain numeric fields shows 0 decimal points and some with 2 decimal points.

    My question is why does Alpha 5 export 1 extra decimal place regardless of whether I click the Excel icon or whether I define an export operation. It does it without fail. If the structure has 0 decimal places, it exports it with 1 decimal place. If I have the settings in the table with 2 decimal places, it exports 3 places. This is annoying. How can I change this behavior?

    Thanks,


    Bruce

    I found this. Apparently, by default, Alpha sends +1 decimal place.
