I've used VariableName.toFixed(x)

However many number you want to have AFTER the decimal is the number you put in (x).

Here's a link: W3Schools Reference to Javascript .toFixed(x)

Thanks, Brent! This is exactly what I needed. Btw - it also rounds on the hundredth place, which is even better :)

Have you looked at using JavaScript? here's a link to the JS function it sounds like you would want.
