Question: I don't think the variable numbers format is working correctly. With the number "1234", the following formats will give you the following displays: ## => 1234, and ##.## => 1234.00. 

The variable number format is working correctly. It has been assumed that it is better to display the number in the wrong format that to throw the data away. In these cases Citect will always display numbers bigger than the maximum display format. If Citect had to display the number 1234 in the format ## you would only see 34 which may confuse the operator when the number is bigger than what you expected.

If you really only want to see the last two digits of a number then use the MOD operator to remove the top digits of the number. For example TAG MOD 100 : ##.## will display 34.00 if TAG has the value 1234.
