rrr Posted March 3, 2005 Share Posted March 3, 2005 I am looking for a general technique here to apply in various ways in various situations, so please just consider these hypothetical examples at face value for discussion purposes... Consider a number calc field called "Total" that evaluates to "4". In designing a layout, I can use number formatting to make this field display as "4.00". However, if I copy and paste the contents of this field, only "4" (not "4.00") winds up on the clipboard, or if try to move the contents of "Total" to a text field using a script like: [set Field: TextField -> GetAsText(Total) & " hours"] ...the resulting data in TextField is "4 hours", not "4.00 hours". This makes sense as to why FMP behaves like this, but I am wondering if there is an easy way to preserve custom number (and date) formatting when moving the contents of number (and date) fields into text fields. rrr Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
