In Panorama X there are only two types of numbers – integers and floating point values. If your Panorama 6 database had fixed point values, for example 2 digit values for money, those are now converted to floating point, which always has about 16 digits of precision. This also means that you no longer have to worry about underflow and overflow problems, which sometimes silently caused calculation errors in Panorama 6. In Panorama 6 the documentation had a section about how to avoid underflow and overflow errors in calculations – in Panorama X this section was removed because it is no longer necessary.
If you want a number converted to text with less than full precision, use the pattern( function, for example:
This will convert the number to text with two places after the decimal point.
There is a video that talks about working with numbers in Panorama X.
