data entry fixed decimal

Recommended Posts

Hello friends so i went threw a couple of pages of old topics and didnt see anything pertaining to this. i have a price field that is formatted as currency ($) with two decimals what i am trying to do is have it so that as numbers are entered they would start the the right of the decimal and move one by one to the left instead of starting to the left of the decimal


if i were to enter 550 currently it would show as $550.00

instead i would like it to be $5.50

any help would be much obliged or even just a push in the right direction of how i would do this would be helpful

You can make your field have an auto-entry on the field with 'calculated value' of:

Case ( PatternCount ( YourField; "." ); YourField; YourField / 100 )
