    Advanced Spreadsheet adds decimal places to typed numbers - How to stop that?

    Asked by fsvault on June 22, 2015 at 02:56 PM

    I have a form that I need to allow people to add different numbers into the different columns I created. The problem is whenever anyone types a number in any of the cells, it converts the number into a dollar amount by adding ".00" at the end of the number. 

    How can I change the setting on that so it doesn't do that anymore?

    Unfortunately there is no option that would do that for you. This is a feature that is built into the widget so that it will do that for you, but if use Spreadsheet widget instead (notice it missing 'advanced' in the name), you will quickly see that there are no decimal numbers added to it.

    Do let us know how it goes.

    The thing is, we need to change the column/row headings to have labels. For this reason, we started using the Advanced Spreadsheet widget. However, this widget changes all the numbers to dollar amounts. In the demo, there is no dollar amounts so I figured that there must be a way for this to work that way.

    Hi Estefania, 


    I checked the Advanced Spreadsheet widget and unfortunately, I was not able to find any workaround to this. I can escalate this issue to our development team as a feature request. I just need your confirmation if you want this feature to be added in the widget. However, I cannot guarantee if this feature will be added. It will depend on the findings of our development team. 


    We will wait for your response.

    Ok, is there any way to change the column/row labels with the regular spreadsheet? Or is that only available on the Advanced Spreadsheet?

    Yes, you can do that, but it requires a bit of CSS.

    Now I have moved that to a new thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/594776 so that we can assist you properly with this and will follow up on it shortly with the CSS code that will allow you to do just that.
