My formula is the following DatePart('ww',{mydatefield}) which shows me my weeks.

However I get 3.00 and I want 3 instead. I can't seem to use the decimal buttons to remove the zeros.

Can anyone help me figure this out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Swiss,

It worked except when I group by the formula it sorts week 10, 11, etc before week 2.

Any ideas

If you are listing the formula on your report, then you should be able to right click on the formula -> format field and apply the format you want such as -1123 which does not have the decimals

i think you can also use "Replace" to strip the decimal part,

Thanks KsKid,

Yeah that worked. The decimal buttons were greyed out but when I right clicked it I could format it to remove the decimal places.

The only thing which is minor is that I still get decimals in the group tree (not on the actual report group names which no longer have decimals). However I can live with that (I didn't get the decimals anywhere with the totext however the sorting was a problem).

Tx again

If the decimalised group tree figures are annoying you then you can amend them easily.

Right click on the group and choose change group.
Click on Options -> Customise -> Use formula as...
Click on the x+2 button and enter:


Or if a string is required then just
