Yeah - that's the way I want it !  :-)
 When you said the users didn't want to have to key the decimal I assumed 
what you meant was that to enter "35.00" they could just key "35", and to 
enter "35.90" they could just key "35.9".  Isn't having to key the two 
zeroes (like "3500" for $35) the way we used to do numeric fields back on 
the S/36 ?

I just tried this and keyed 6512 field exit and it came back as 6512.00
In order to do what the users want, it would have to display as 65.12, let
them enter 3519 and accept it as 35.19.  I can do this in code, of course.
I was just hoping that there was some way to avoid having to do that.
Thanks, Lance
