Reduce number of decimals in document templates

Could you please reduce the number of decimals in the reports to a maximum of two or make it optional?

In the "Sale Statement Activity" template for example there are 4 decimals for the invoice amount. We rarely use decimals on our documents and if we do it we never need more than two.

Hi Everyone,

Please note decimal points on DEAR documents can be controlled by adding field switches to mailmerge fields i.e  \#,##0.00. So Price field {MERGEFIELD Price} be changed to {MERGEFIELD Price \#,##0.00} for two decimal places in price, 

Here is a helpful article by Microsoft regarding formatting field codes in MS Word , explained under "Display the field results"

If you still have any question regarding this, please contact DEAR Support Team


I am very confused why there are 4 decimals. It really just confuses everyone
