significant digits

I have a field I want to set significant digits on it 2 decimals and I want it to be a number

so
510.1
should be
510.10
and of course I can make that number, it is trivial, but LUA immediately changes it back to 510.1
am I missing a trick of some kind to set significant digits?

confusion: lfs, and dir path

I have a file (on my desktop) but it could be anywhere.

I am not sure, here, is lfs included in FH?

I am using the code snippet LoadCSV. it doesnt find the file, I guess it doesnt look thru MY whole computer path.

how do I find a file on my computer, and retrieve the path?

Re: Only Child

philisophically... when your ggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggreatgranddaughter is verifying the research and adding to the family tree, I think that a known child count of 1 is as helpful as a known child count of 0. I would include it anyhow.

it tidies them up for the api, and uses the 'tidied up' field as the address when it plunks them in source records, so when I make a table of them to get my LAT LONG I do not have the API addresses in my file.

a question, although I will find out, does it attach the source record it creates to those addresses? then its a simpler matter to revamp my code, otherwise have to come up with code to attach to address, so I would look for (in my case) @S1944@ FaG in my matGRV module, and then grab the source of t...

I guess my question was, is that what you intended, that it doesnt see a different version on update. I am figuring out how to write a plugin that will take my current TODO events and split the notes into the research planner note forms.

FYI, I just checked installed plugins against the store, and if you have done any updates since I took the working copy from the thread, it did not retrieve a new copy, it said its up to date. Is that the way it should be?
