    Dear all,
    I select price from SQLLite as follow query

    mPrice=Main.SQL1.ExecQuerySingleResult("Select ifnull(PriceWithVAT,0) as PriceWithVAT from ProductPrice Where ItemCode='" & P.ItemCode & "'")

    result : mPrice= 2.04039E7 (but the actual value is 20403831.8)

    When I show the value to EditText, it is 2.04039E7 rather than 20403831.8

    Many thanks for any help

    ExecQuerySingleResult returns a string. Seems like it loses precision here. Try to use ExecQuery and get the result with Cursor.GetDouble.

    I tried with Cursor.GetDouble but same.

    Use the NumberFormat function to format the number for display in the Editext.

    Another alternative to Erel and keirS good advice is to use the SUBSTR function like this without having to reformat the result:
    Dim mPrice As String
    "Select ifnull(substr(PriceWithVAT,1),0) " _
    "from ProductPrice Where ItemCode='" & P.ItemCode & "'")

    You can try:

    mPrice=Main.SQL1.ExecQuerySingleResult("Select cast(ifnull(PriceWithVAT,0) as decimal(10,2)) as PriceWithVAT from ProductPrice Where ItemCode='" & P.ItemCode & "'")
