Is it possible to format a field that was created and calculated in a model so I do not have to manually format it after the model is ran?  My model does an acreage calculation and I would like it to calculate to only two decimal places.  It currently defaults to six decimals.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

You could play with the parameters but I'd just run a second 'Calculate Field' on the [acres] field with a ROUND()

[acres] = round([acres],2)
