## limiting the number of decimal places

How do I limit the number of decimal places in a calculation
X := depos.text;
Result1 := X-(X*pofsle/100);
Result2 := Result1-(Result1*avlmkt/100);
Poscalc := Result2-(Result2*prepay/100);
laPoscalc.Caption := Poscalc;

Poscalc is a currency variant & I want to limit to 2 decimal places.
Can anybody help??

Thankyou.

## Re:limiting the number of decimal places

Try

function FloatToStrF(Value: Extended; Format: TFloatFormat; Precision,
Digits: Integer): string;

X : Extended;

X := StrToFloat(depos.text);
Result1 := X-(X*pofsle/100);
Result2 := Result1-(Result1*avlmkt/100);
Poscalc := Result2-(Result2*prepay/100);
laPoscalc.Caption := FloatToStrF(Poscalc,ffCurrency , 10, 2);
