  2. Select the required field. Navigate to the  Field Properties -> Validation  section, displayed on the right.

In the event that you set the  Decimal Points  property with a value that is less than the number of digits (after the decimal point) present in existing records, Zoho Creator:

  • Rounds off the decimal values (stored in that field) of existing records to the newly set  Decimal Points  value, and displays these adjusted values when a user accesses the corresponding report
  • Rounds off the decimal values (stored in that field) to the newly set  Decimal Points  value, and displays this adjusted value in that field's input area when a user accesses a record to update it
  • Applies the new  Decimal Points  value to validate records added after this change
