format decimal number

format decimal number

format decimal number

Dear sir
How can i format decimal number to be displayed in datawindow with replacing decimal dot separatore with space as:
145.65    displayed as   145 650
67.652                   675 652
0.53                         530  (no decimal number}
I did this using computed field , but i think there is another way.

many thanks

RE: format decimal number

Try 'playing' with the format of the column in the datawindow painter.  I've done things like appended letter status to dates, appended asterisks to numbers, and such.  Maybe something like:

left(string(number),pos(string(number),'.' - 1)) + ' ' + right(string(number),len(string(number)) - pos(string(number),'.'))

since the resulting column is a string and not a number there may be other formatting issues.

RE: format decimal number

thanks mplanet
I wrote that script in format propert of the field, but find some valid /invalid values e.g.
23.45 --> 23 45
0.14   --> 14  
0.76   --> 1 76

when number >= 0.5 , it is 1 + decimal
also i want to align numbers in that away
145.65    145 650
675.65     675 650
0.53          530  
i think as you said "since the resulting column is a string and not a number there may be other formatting issues"

can we find these issues.
many thanks

RE: format decimal number

left(string(number * 1000
),pos(string(number * 1000
),'.' - 1)) + ' ' + right(string(number * 1000
),len(string(number * 1000
)) - pos(string(number * 1000
