Authorization Dollars Used
The number of authorized dollars used (paid) was not being accumulated when an insurance payment was made.

When the settings for formatting the units is 2 or 3 characters and zero implied decimal places, the program will now print fractional units (such as 1.5) whenever possible.

Changes and New Features
