How can I format a string that holds a number like:

34789 to be displayed as 35 kB
or
34236 to be displayed as 34 kB
or
123612 to be displayed as 124 kB

Hope someone can help me!

Something like this should work:

<cfset kb = int(round(34789/1000))>
34789 = <cfoutput>#kb#</cfoutput> kB
<br>
<cfset kb = int(round(34236/1000))>
34236 = <cfoutput>#kb#</cfoutput> kB
<br>
<cfset kb = int(round(123612/1000))>
123612 = <cfoutput>#kb#</cfoutput> kB

Also, don't forget that

1024 bytes = 1 KB

so, the math is not necessarily this simple, but those are the numbers you asked for.

So then it should be?

<cfset kb = int(round(34789/1024))>
34789 = <cfoutput>#kb#</cfoutput> kB

Here it is!

<CFIF SIZE lt 2000>                                                                                          #Trim(NumberFormat(SIZE,'____'))#&nbsp;bytes
<CFELSEIF SIZE gt 2000000>
#Trim(NumberFormat(SIZE/1024/1024,'__________.0'))#&nbsp;M
<CFELSE>
#Trim(NumberFormat(SIZE/1024,'____'))#&nbsp;K
</CFIF>

Size is the variable u want to change.
