News from SYWARE: sqlceEnable evaluation edition available.
The vast majority of our customers use Visual CE's built-in database on their
devices and have no need to use .SDF files (SQL Server CE databases). This
is true even if they are working with SQL Server as their server database,
since Visual CE can automatically synchronize to any ODBC database, including
SQL Server. However, some of our customers have used other tools to build
applications requiring SDF files. For these customers we offer sqlceEnable.
It allows Visual CE and Report CE to work against .SDF tables. If your
requirements include SQL Server CE, you may wish to
try the sqlcEnable evaluation.

Normally, calculated controls display 6 digits to the right of the decimal point. If
you turn on the "Money" property, the display is rounded to 2 decimal places.
Occasionally you wish to display 1, 3, 4, or 5 decimal places for a floating
point value. You can
control the number of decimal digits displayed by a calculated control
by following this suggestion.
