Speed-Quote sets the number of decimal places visible for numeric and currency fields based on the requirements of the quote sheet. On the Master Entry Sheet, for example, by default the dimensions fields display 3 decimal places of precision (and 4 decimal places for the cube):

You can also do so by selecting Add Decimal Places from the Format menu. From the sub-menu you can choose to add decimal places for the Current Product or Selected Products. If you choose to add decimal places for selected products, a window will appear with a list of all available products. Checkmark all the products in the list that you wish to affect, and click the Add Decimals to Selected Products button.

From the Add Decimal Places window, click the arrows to increase the number of decimal places used for numeric and currency fields. Note that the number shown is not the amount of decimal places, but rather the number of decimal places that will be added to those already displayed on the quote sheet. So in the case of the dimensions fields on the Master Entry Sheet, adding 1 to the decimal places of numbers will allow the selected product to display 4 decimal places of precision (and 5 decimal places of precision for the cube). For example, the Item Cube by default showed 4 decimal places of precision resulting in "5.5417" as shown above.  By adding another decimal place to numbers, the Item Cube as shown below now displays an additional decimal place of precision (5 decimal places) resulting in "5.54167".

As you can see, a product can never display less precision than the quote sheet was designed to show. It should be a rare case that you require additional decimal precision, but this feature exists for those instances.
