Decimal Precision for Same Field Type

The system supports various field types, such as Money, amount, percentage -  and you want different rounding rules/decimal precision for them.
 
  
For example you have 2 fields both set as type = "money". One you want to have 2 decimal point precision, the other one is 0 decimal points. Is this possible?
 
 Yes, but you can only set certain conditions. To make a format for a condition, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Set Number Format Rules as described above
  2. Click on Apply to conditions: Set another condition
  3. Click on Add another rate type to match under Rate type matches any of below:
  4. Define the rate type (annual, monthly) that this format will be for
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for as many times as you need
  6. Click on Add another currency to match
  7. Specify the currency this format will apply to
  8. Repeat 6-7 as many times as needed to add all the currencies this format will apply to
