Hi,
Could you please show me how to get
1.9
to show with two decimal places (1.90)

you can use

``Math.Round(1.99999999, 2)``

if you want to bring the decimal places down to two
but how do you increase from zero or one decimal place up to two?

Thanks
Peter

Hi,

Check this :

``````TextBox1.Text = Format(1.9, "0.00")

TextBox2.Text = Format(22, "0.00")``````

You can also use; assuming the variable is named dblResult...

``CStr(dblResult.ToString("#,##0.00"))``

It worked for me and it does round up/down as needed.

If you store your number in a variable of decimal type, you can convert into a string with two decimal places (including .00) this way:

Dim dAmount as Decimal
Dim strFormattedAmount as String

strFormattedAmount= dAmount.ToString("N2")

THANKS ITS WORK GREAT

Dim dAmount as Decimal
Dim strFormattedAmount as String

strFormattedAmount= dAmount.ToString("N2")

Try this:
String.Format("{0:f2}", CType("10.22222222", Decimal))
