I am facing a problem where one of my column is of decimal type which can accept values upto 38 digits and 10 precision after the decimal point.The problem is when I insert a big number it is automatically converted to its exponential form.I want to prevent this from happenning.Please suggest me a solution to it.

What do you mean by ''inserting'' a big number?
I tried typing a 1234567890123456789.1234567890 into a column whose style.CellValueType = typeof(double);, and could not see it change to exponential format. If you mean pasteing into the cell, I tried that as well. Now excel will not handle a number with that many significant digits, but if I typed such a number into NotePad and then copied it, I could paste it into the column without seeing the E-Format.
So, for me, the decimal values did not lose their formatting when they were entered into the grid.
You might try setting style.Format = "#.############"; for the column to see if that handles the problem.
If it does not, can you tell me how to see the problem in one of our samples, or can you post a sample project showing the problem.
