my code is working fine, but the output shows for example 12345.000

i would like to only show the data before the .000 is this posible?

Private Sub GetCurrentJanVOL()
        Dim con As New SqlConnection
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
        Try
            con.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" & ServerV & ";Initial Catalog=" & databaseV & ";Persist Security Info=True;User ID=" & usernameV & ";Password=" & passwordV & ""
            con.Open()
            cmd.Connection = con
            cmd.CommandText = "SELECT SUM(QtyInvoiced) AS JanVol FROM ArTrnDetail where (Customer = '" & Me.LBCustomer.Text & "') AND (TrnYear ='" & Me.LBcurrentyear.Text & "') AND (TrnMonth = 1)"
            Dim lrd As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
            While lrd.Read()

                Me.LBcurJanVol.Text = Convert.ToString(lrd("JanVol"))

            End While
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show("Error while getting Current year volume for Jan")
        Finally
            con.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub

If the value from the reader "JanVol" will always be numeric:

CInt(lrd("JanVol")).ToString() 'Round up or down.
CInt(Math.Floor(lrd("JanVol"))).ToString() 'Round down.

thanks i thought this was sorted but it isn't as some times
the
Convert.ToString(lrd("JanVol")) is empty, when it is empty i get all kinds of errors.

is there anyway to trim the last 4 char of the string?

You can always use the Integer side for the format in a textbox

in example:

Dim p as Integer
If IsNumeric(TextBox.Text) Then
     p = Integer.Parse(TextBox.Text)
End If

that will also get take of does extra zero's

Validate your data from the reader.

If lrd("JanVol") Is DBNull.Value Then
      LBcurJanVol.Text = "0"
Else
      LBcurJanVol.Text = CInt(lrd("JanVol")).ToString
End If
