You would have to assign the number to a string and check the length after the decimal to be able to do that.

Dim sTemp As String
Dim iTemp As Integer

sTemp = "3.3"

iTemp = InStr(sTemp, ".")

If Len(sTemp) - iTemp < 2 Then sTemp = sTemp & "0"

Dim N as single, NOut as string

NOut = Format$(N, "###,##0.00")
