I''m surprised it''s so difficult to simply have an editable currency cell. Do i have to make a renderer or something. just thought i could use celltype = "Currency" and Format = "C" and voila but here i am hours later still stumped. i changed the field type in the table to string and cellvaluetype to string, also strictvaluetype to false and still the expected decimal value exception. isn''t there an easy way, if not there should be! it''s a very typical request. You must have something that will do it, i know i''m not the first. can you send me the renderer or whatever it is i need. i want the table''s field type to be numeric though, not string.
