have a look at this :-

object.Format = formatstring

The Format property syntax has these parts

object expression
An expression that specifies a particular object and can include any of the object's containers. For example, an application can have an Application object that contains a Document object that contains a Text object

A combination of keywords, operators, variables, and constants that yields a string, number, or object. An expression can be used to perform a calculation, manipulate characters, or test data.

The StdDataFormat object is an integral part of data binding. It is created for any bound control, regardless of whether you create one in code
