Question: I use Delphi 7, TpFIBDataSet 6.5.0 Release and Firebird 2.0. I have a field NUMERIC(18,6) in a pFIBDataSet (with persistent fields) and I want to display this field like the currency format. I set the Currency property to True, but the field is not displayed in the currency format. The field is displayed as "1.000000".

Answer: Please check the TField.DisplayFomat property. It must be empty.

======Cut from Borland help==========

Use the Currency property to specify the formatting of the field for viewing and editing in a data-aware control.

The field is formatted for display using the DisplayFormat property if it is assigned. If DisplayFormat is not assigned, Currency determines how the field is formatted for display. If Currency is True the value is formatted for display using the FloatToText function with the ffCurrency formatting code. If Currency is False, the value is formatted with the ffGeneral format.

The field is formatted for editing purposes using the EditFormat (or DisplayFormat) property if it is assigned. If neither EditFormat nor DisplayFormat is assigned, Currency determines how the field is formatted for editing. If Currency is True, the value is formatted for editing using the FloatToText function with the ffFixed formatting code. If Currency is False, the value is formatted with the ffGeneral format.
