Hello, I'm trying to show a Numeric Formula field in red by way of a Rich Text Formula field.
This is what I'm using in the Rich Text Formula field:"<div style=\"color:#ff0000;fontsize:9pt\">$"&[SubTotal w/ Vacancy]&"</div>"
The [SubTotal] field is a Formula  Numeric field, with the currency option chosen.
The rich text field removes the dollar sign and decimal point from the numeric field. On one value it also added more decimal points than the numeric field allows for.
Any ideas how to maintain the numeric settings in the rich text field?

That's pretty interesting. What happens when you try wrapping the currency field with a ToText() ?

Try this one. Just change the first line to use your currency field.
var number Value = Round([My Currency field],0.01);
var text Decimals = "." & Right(ToText(Int(Abs($value) * 100)),2);
var text Thousands = If(Abs($Value)>=1000,ToText(Int(Abs($Value)/1000)));
var text Hundreds=Right(ToText(Int(Abs($Value))),3);
If($Value=0,"$0.00",
If($Value<0, "<font color=red> ")
&
"$" & List(",",$Thousands,$Hundreds) & $Decimals)
var number Value = Round([My Currency field],0.01);
var text Decimals = "." & Right(ToText(Int(Abs($value) * 100)),2);
var text Thousands = If(Abs($Value)>=1000,ToText(Int(Abs($Value)/1000)));
var text Hundreds=Right(ToText(Int(Abs($Value))),3);
If($Value=0,"$0.00",
If($Value<0, "<font color=red> ")
&
"$" & List(",",$Thousands,$Hundreds) & $Decimals)

So, it's necessary to recapitulate the bakedin currency settings for a numeric field in code in a formula field that wants to use the settings selected for that field, do I have that right?
Do you think this represents a bug in the ToText function, or at least an error in its documentation, which reads 'Returns a Text value containing the print representation of the argument', which appears based on this conversation not to be true?

I don’t know if they will accept it as a bug, but I seem to recall in my testing that it did not retain the decimals when the cents end in 00 or 0 like 123.10 comes out as 123.1. Is that what you have found.
I am just on my iPhone now but I think the actual function is ToFormattedText but I don’t think I was able to get it to retain 2 decimals.

Mark, i've used this formula and it retains the decimals and it also extends to millions
var number Value = Round([MY FIELD],0.01);
var text Decimals = "." & Right(ToText(Int($value * 100)),2);
var text Thousands = If(Abs($Value)>=1000,ToText(Int(Abs($Value)/1000)));
var text Hundreds=Right(ToText(Int($Value)),3);
var text Millions = If($Value>=1000000,ToText(Int($Value/1000000)));
If($value>=1000000,"$" & ToFormattedText($value, "comma_dot") & $decimals,
If($Value=0,"$0.00",
If($Value<0, " ")
&
"$" & List(",",$Millions,$Thousands,$Hundreds) & $Decimals))
var number Value = Round([MY FIELD],0.01);
var text Decimals = "." & Right(ToText(Int($value * 100)),2);
var text Thousands = If(Abs($Value)>=1000,ToText(Int(Abs($Value)/1000)));
var text Hundreds=Right(ToText(Int($Value)),3);
var text Millions = If($Value>=1000000,ToText(Int($Value/1000000)));
If($value>=1000000,"$" & ToFormattedText($value, "comma_dot") & $decimals,
If($Value=0,"$0.00",
If($Value<0, " ")
&
"$" & List(",",$Millions,$Thousands,$Hundreds) & $Decimals))
