Formatting a SQL Select string

Formatting a SQL Select string

Formatting a SQL Select string

I have a SELECT statement in Access 2000 that contains the following:
Format([UnitPrice]/[Weight],'$0.0000') AS expr1

I am looking for an equivalent in SQL Server, but have yet to find it.  The SELECT statement is the source for a ListBox in an Access 2000 Project.

Any ideas on how I could format the column in the list box to have a $ and display 4 decimal places?  If the number is like "3.34", I want it to format to "$3.3400".

Thanks for your help!

RE: Formatting a SQL Select string

The closest I could come is:

select convert(money, 3.34)

Obviously, you'd replace "3.34" with your expression or column.
