Hello All I have a small problem with DecimalFormat,

I have the following code:

But the problem is that, in database I have following value: 1 000 100 003 840 , and I need to print it like : 1 000 100 003 840 €, but the "value" is a BigDecimal and print like "1.0001E+12" and after the decimalFormat.format(value) I get following result "1 000 100 000 000,00" , do you know my problem, I loose 3 840 € ...

The format variable is the following string "###,##0.00"

Do you know a solution to this problem ?

Great thank and best regards,
