Sorry no, it displays a totaly different number.

The var = 67876 and when I do the Floattostr it displays 6.83839027164864E -317

not quite what the var is :)
Any others please?

I would prefer Format function:

xStr := Format('%10.2f',[x]);

Works fine with me :

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  dblTemp : Double;
begin
  inherited;
  dblTemp := 67876;
  ShowMessage(FloatToStr(dblTemp));
  ShowMessage(FloatToStrF(dblTemp,ffFixed,10,2));
end;
