# Command SET FIXED Foundation

Defines whether a fixed number of decimal places are used when displaying numeric values.

`SET FIXED on | OFF | <lToggle>`

The command SET FIXED ON specifies that numeric values are displayed using the number of decimal places set with the command SET DECIMALS. The initial value of SET DECIMALS is two. This means that a call to SET FIXED ON, prior to a call to SET DECIMALS, formats numeric values with two decimal places. Only the display, and not the exactness of mathematical calculations, is affected by SET FIXED. When SET FIXED is ON, displayed values are rounded, not truncated.
