I need to take a number (9123456) and insert commas so that it looks like (9,123,456). I have it written in javascript for the client side but I need a vbscript version for the server-side and I have not used regular expressions in vbscript yet so I need some help.

If your local currency settings are for $

<%
  dim number
  number = 9123456
  Response.Write right(formatcurrency(number,0),len(formatcurrency(number,0))-1)
%>

No RegExp needed, just use FormatNumber;

<%
theNum = FormatNumber("9876543210", 0)
Response.Write theNum
%>

The "0" indicates the number of decimal places to write after the .

I don't want to rely on local settings. I would prefer to handle via regular expression logic.
