    trailing zero in Decimal

    Hello everyone,


    Mentioned here,

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...al(VS.80).aspx


    What means "The scaling factor also preserves any trailing zeroes in a Decimal number"? Could anyone show me a sample please?


    thanks in advance,
    George

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
