Yes, you are right and I found that earlier but somehow posted the STR(GCOMMISSION,3,2) instead. I see no reason why this should not work. I had it working in VFP for many years and now it fails. I know there is something stupid I am either not doing or overlooking. The saga continues.

You need to use STR(GCOMMISSION,4,2). The second argument is the total number of characters, including the period.

It seems that select/option may not like numeric value converted to character. Here is my code.
*** GCOMMISSION is stored as a numeric with a value of 0.90
*** START EDIT FORM ***
*** Set The Vars
M.GCOMMISSION = STR(GCOMMISSION,3,2)
*** The Edit Form
<SELECT NAME="gcommission" SIZE="1">
<OPTION VALUE="0.85" <%=IIF(M.gcommission='0.85', 'SELECTED', '')%>>0.85</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="0.90" <%=IIF(M.gcommission='0.90', 'SELECTED', '')%>>0.90</OPTION>
<INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT NAME=btnchoice VALUE="Update">
The problem is that 0.90 is never automatically selected and it form always loads with 0.85. In the add form I am able to properly save the commission but the edit form fails. Am I missing something?
