How to limit Currency to 2 decimal place?

Here is an Example.

Dim a As Currency

a = 352 * 242/ 25.5252

The a will return more than 2 decimal place, how to limit it to just 2 decimal place?

Thanks

appari,
   if you want to be sure that you ALWYS get the cents, then the format should be:

a=format(352 * 242/ 25.5252,"#,##0.00")

the .## notation will drop trailing 0's , using a 0 in the formatstring FORCES a zero in that place, no matter what.

it depends on whether to display 0 cents or not. both the formats will give result.
