Thanks dosyl, much appreciated.

You could also look at the Format function - it is more flexible.

Can you write Cdbl(Val(Text1.Text)) with the format function?

To convert Text1.Text to a Currency value you can try:
Format(Text1.Text), "Currency")

or if you want to first convert it to a Double and then to a Currency try:
Format(CDbl(Val(Text1.Text)), "Currency")

Both should work.

Regards,
Grant.
