earth2d:

TextAnswer.Text = Format(Val(Number1.Text) / Val(Number2.Text), ".000")

I am assuming you want accuracy to 3 decimal places. 3/33=0.09069 which should display as .091 not .090

That did work well with an If statement and I used txtAnswer.Text =  Format(msngAnswer, "0.") for the other opt.Values.  That is what I was looking for.  good Deal!
