When using the Internet Search Wizard to query against numeric data in FoxPro tables, decimal places will be truncated in the results.


In order for the decimal values to be displayed properly, the STR() function must be used in the SELECT statement in the IDC file. The IDC file may be edited in a text editor such as Notepad.

For example, the following IDC file that was generated by the Internet Search Wizard has been modified to include the STR() function for numeric fields (Numfield1 and Numfield2):

   Template: TEST.HTX
   +SELECT  Field1, Field2, STR(Numfield1,10,2), STR(Numfield2,10,2)
   + FROM 'TEST'
   + WHERE ID = '%SearchParam%'
   Maxrecords: 10


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Follow the steps in the following Knowledge Base article to create an Internet search page using the Internet Search Wizard. Use a table that contains numeric fields.
