5 Decimal Places Datasource

Good Day

Experts:

I have a request to change a Quantity field on one of my screens from the current 3 decimal places to 5. I have changed the DataSource for the field to Measure.

When loading the record, the quantity value before assigning to the datasource and after assigning to the datasource is 5 decimal places.

However, only 3 decimal places are showing in my Matrix column. I cannot change the Administration setting from 3 to 5 as the Users do not want the other fields to accomodate 5. The User-Defined field is set to Units/Totals with a structure of Measure.

Does anyone know how I can show 5 decimal places for just this field?

Thanks,

EJD

    • Hi Ed,

      If you are using an addon it is possible to solve this, but it it not a very nice solution in my opinion.

      When displaying this field, you have to use a string datasource and format the field yourself.
