# Formatting for Currency - results label

## Formatting for Currency - results label

(OP)
I still can't make this thing work!!!
I've tried what I find in books to make the final resulting calculation (in LblEI.Caption) format for currency, but I can't get it to do it. As it's set up, I get a "." instead of a "," and if the last number in the answer is a "0" it drops it. Also, sometimes the answer will go to 4 decimal places. I've figured everything else out except for this.
What I want is "$###,###" as a format. The numbers used for this calc are not currency, but I want the final result to be currency. Thanks! ' if attendance is greater than peakroomcount ' multiply peakroomcount by 1.8 ' whichever is less - attendance or new peakroomcount and multiply * 1.451 Private Sub BookingFormula2() Dim Vara Dim Varprc& Dim Xprv Vara = Val(TxtAttend.Text) Varprc = Val(TxtPRC.Text) Xprv = Varprc * 1.8 If Vara > Varprc Then Xprv = Varprc * 1.8 If Vara < Xprv Then LblEI.Caption = Vara * 1.451 Else: LblEI.Caption = Xprv * 1.451 End If End If End Sub ### RE: Formatting for Currency - results label try this #,###.00 ### RE: Formatting for Currency - results label (OP) Thanks DougP, but it still wouldn't work - am I writing it wrong? After the LblEI.Caption lines, I write... LblEI.Caption = Format(Vara, "#,###.00) LblEI.Caption = Format(Xprv, "#,###.00) As an example, when I plug in 100 and 50 for my two numbers, the LblEI.Caption says 130.59 --- what I want is 130,590 or at least 130.590 Another example is when I plug in 150 and 78, I get 203.7204 -- I need least 203.720 or 203,720 Thanks! ### RE: Formatting for Currency - results label ok - have you tried #,###.000 ' more zeroes after the . ? ### RE: Formatting for Currency - results label (OP) I've plugged in both of your suggestions, but it somehow wreaks the formula - I get totally different results in LblEI. Any other thoughts out there? This is so frustrating -- I'm so close to success! Thanks ### RE: Formatting for Currency - results label how about format(vara, ".000") ### RE: Formatting for Currency - results label and here is something else to try ------------------------ This example uses the CCur function to convert an expression to a Currency. Dim MyDouble, MyCurr MyDouble = 543.214588 ' MyDouble is a Double. MyCurr = CCur(MyDouble * 2) ' Convert result of MyDouble * 2 ' (1086.429176) to a ' Currency (1086.4292). ---------------------------- then format the Result = Format(MyCurr ,"$##0.00")
