thats easy, fields do not have a numberFormat property. It works as follows:
  set the numberFormat to "0.00"
  put (numeric expression) into fld "xy"

  set the numberFormat to "0.000"
  add 0 to fld "xy"

  set the numberFormat to "0.0000"
  put fld "xy"+0 into fld "xy"

  set the numberFormat to "0.00000"
  put (numeric expression) & "" into variable

true, at least it worked this way in Hypercard (see p. 442).
