I have some numbers that I want to convert to string (text) for a table. I'll pull up a sheet, look at the measure, right click on the # symbol next to the variable, then click on string. When I go to look at the data source, now, instead of say 8.3, the string is 8.29999999. Why is it doing that? I just took a training and the guy said how to fix it, but unfortunately, I can't recall that fix. Any help?
You can change the format if the property is Number with Default Property
But once you change the data type to string, you are getting 8.299999***,
Now you can got to data source
You get 8.3
Original Data does not change, so when you go back and change the data source property back to "Decimal", original value is still there.
