Updates regarding Text Calculations using numeric fields

 

Text calculations that reference a number display the number they are pulled from in the Event Form

Text calculations that reference a number display the number they are pulled from in the Event Form

If you have a numeric field being pulled into a text calculation the number shown in the text calculation will display the same number format shown in the event form.

In the Athlete History the number is shown as the full number that was actually written

However, in the Athlete History the text calculation will display the numeric field that you actually entered. The 10m time entered on the 10-2012 was entered as 1.11 and because it is a 3 decimal place field it was rounded to 1.110 (for display in the Athlete History). We created a text calculation from this field and it only displays the 1.11 (the original number entered) in the Athlete History.

Alternatively, the record entered on the 12-2012 had 5.6666, but it was rounded to 5.7 for the numeric field ( with 1 decimal places). The text calculation shows the original number that was entered (5.6666).
