When you use Fulcrum calculation fields in your app, your formula can output different data types depending on what youâ€™re calculating.

You can configure and control the calculation field to display the data in several formatting options:

- Text - useful for calculations that append strings
- Numbers - when you use calculation results to feed other number calculations, this is the best way to go
- Date - doing date calculations like adding a number of days to an existing date, this will save as a date object
- Currency - when formulas do math on monetary values, you can display the result as any standard country currency format
