# Text formula field to show no decimals from # field

Hi there , I have a formula text field that reads another formula field but a number, and adds an image. My issue is that the number formula field is set with NO decimals. But, when i reference the # field in my new text formula field, all the decimals are showing. So, A1 is a formula number field with NO decimals and i'm trying this: TEXT(A1)&" - " Image(/img/green.jpg.... And so on. Is there a way to have the A1 value show as I set the field with no decimals ? Thanks! B

Hi,

I have tried the same and I am not getting the value with decimal value inside the 2nd formula field. Even if you are getting the decimal then use ROUND to remove the decimal.

ROUND

Description: Returns the nearest number to a number you specify, constraining the new number by a specified number of digits.

Use: ROUND(number, num_digits) and replace number with the field or expression you want rounded; replace num_digits with the number of decimal places you want to consider when rounding.

Example: ROUND (1.5, 0) = 2

ROUND (1.2345, 0) = 1

ROUND (-1.5, 0) = -2

ROUND (225.49823, 2) = 255.50

Simple Discounting

ROUND(Amount-Amount* Discount_Percent__c,2)

Use this formula to calculate the discounted amount of an opportunity rounded off to two digits. This example is a number formula field on opportunities that uses a custom percent field calledDiscount Percent.

Tips: § Enter zero for num_digits to round a number to the nearest integer.

§ Salesforce automatically rounds numbers based on the decimal places you specify. For example, a custom number field with two decimal places stores 1.50 when you enter 1.49999.

§ Salesforce uses the round half-up rounding algorithm. Half-way values are always rounded up. For example, 1.45 is rounded to 1.5. –1.45 is rounded to –1.5.

§ The decimal numbers displayed depend on the decimal places you selected when defining the field in the custom field wizard. The num_digits represents the number of digits considered when rounding.
