The ‘Apply Format’ task is used to apply a formatting information on the data itself.
Each dataset used in ZIPPYDOC can be formatted by the ‘Formatting’ task. This tasks supplements columns with the information of the formatting to be used to display the data. Example. If a record is ‘0.1’, then:
- the record is shown as ‘0.1’ if no format is provided
- the record is shown as ‘10%’ if no format % is provided with no digits
- the record is shown as ‘10.00%’ if format % is provided with two digits
In none of these cases, the underlying record ‘0.1’ is changed. If, however, the user wants to adjust the record to e.g. 10,00% in above example, he can simply run the ‘Apply Format’ task to get this done.
