My apology if I have not make my question clear. I am asking how to program in python to store number with 2 decimal places. I am using tkinter TTK to display the number. It would appear that tkinter would just accept the native data from the sqlite data with a single digit decimal to display. So my question is how to make it store in sqlite3 database with 2 decimal places. yes I understand using prinf command in sqlite3 or select command to format but not in python programming as in my example. I am a newbie, am I doing something wrong or do I approach it wrongly? Just want a simple solution. Thank you.
