I should display a decimal numeric value into a pure text item (data type: char, no format mask).
everything seems to work if item is not bound to database; but, if text item is bound to a numeric DB field, leading zero is trimmed!
ie: if DB value is 0,123456789, it is rendered as ",123456789".
this is awful! how can I fix this bug? Setting data type as Number, or using format mask would force me to a given format (ie: truncate decimal digits to a given quantity).
Again, note that if my text item is not bound to DB, number is displayed correctly.

it's NUMBER(20,10).
note that values are correctly stored in DB (eg: 0,00123456789)

So why don't you make it a number and set it to accept ten decimals places?

Im trying several ways, unsuccessfully.
In my item property palette, I put Data Type = Char, Number, Long, RNumber... getting the same output.
If text item isnt bound to DB field, value is display correctly (0,0012...).
If text item is bound to DB field, leading zero is trimmed (,0012...).
How can I set text item to accept decimal places?
