For example

PRICE VALUE = 0.99 show as 99c

smaller font.

    Hi Robert,

    Generally for formatting solutions like this one you could simply use
    the DisplayFormat property of the DBText/DBCalc component. If you right
    click over the component and select "Display Format" you will be given a
    number of options as well as the ability to customize your own format.

    RAP is a full featured programming language. If you need to take
    complete control over the text output, you could implement the OnGetText
    event of the DBText and essentially write pascal code to alter its
    value. See the Language tab at the bottom right of the code window for
    some of the helpful formatting routines available.

    Best Regards,
