SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Here's my scenario.

I have one document library with a series of columns. One of these is a number field. It has the decimal point set to 1, with a view of showing numbers in the "x.x" format. As far as SharePoint is concerned, this works.

I've used a Quick Part in Word (docx format) to capture this field but here is where my problem starts. The captured number is coming through as a single digit, without the decimal "x" format.

The Quick Part options within Word seem fairly limited, so I'm wondering if this is an issue that anyone has seen before, or if they could suggest anything for me to try?

For full discolsure, I've also asked this question on the TechNet Forums.

Many thanks, Steven

OK, turns out that SharePoint stores the integer output in an XML format, which is then read by the Word Client. I'm digging a little deeper to investigate this. –  Steven D Andrews Jun 18 '13 at 16:54
