    Calculated field. Fixed number of digits after decimal point

    Asked by NRCsupport on February 26, 2014 at 02:36 AM

    Is there a way of forcing a calculated field to include a fixed number of digits after the decimal point. I am trying to calculate a total amount by multiplying the number of items by the price per item. The price is set to 12.50 as the default in a field. The number of items is an integer (1 to 8) in another field. The total is just the product of these, but when the answer is a whole number the decimal point and decimal digits (00) are not displayed, and when it should end in .50 it leaves out the zero.

    Unfortunately, I don't think that is possible in our Calculation Wizard. And I'm able to replicate the issue with the decimal places. Well, I guess that's how the calculation output is coded to our end. I will submit a ticket about it.

    I have found a thread entitled "How can I get Always two numbers behind de decimal dot?" In which the final message from JotForm was

    Hi Eduard,

    We've fixed decimal places issue. It should be working now. Thanks for reporting.


    So, has this been fixed or not. It still doesn't work for me.

    HI, I see that is not adding the zero, so it has not been fixed yet, however our developers are aware of this, since the ticket for this request is still open, you will be notified via this thread once it is fixed.
