I have a edit box that calculates the total for the items in a grid.  It works properly but when you add an item that ends in a zero such as $9.90, $9.00, $5.50 etc, it only shows the total as $24.4 instead of $24.40 can anyone tell me why that occurs?  I think this is fairly easy but I am offer 25pts.

Thanks,
Tony

Isn't $9.90 nine dollars and 90 cents?

In the end of the procedure that computes the total, you should have something like:

TotalEdit.Text := '$' + Total;

Try something like this instead:

TotalEdit.Text := Format('$%.2f', [Total]);

HTH, julio
