    Unanswered: change to standard format

    Set tbl = db.TableDefs("Invoice")

    tbl.Fields.Append tbl.CreateField("amount", dbCurrency)

    the above code is working well.
    However, the below code, I cannot change the format (standard), no dollar sign.

    tbl.Fields("amount").Properties("Standard") = True

    What's wrong with it?
    How can I change the format (standard)?
    Please let me know, thanks.

    I seem to recall people going over this with you a few times already but... formatting should be performed at the form or report level, not the table level.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
