Hi
Can anyone help with the title problem

I have a currency column in the db, when I add it to the site page and convert it to decimal then submit the form I receive the error.

Input string was not in a correct format

the text box is: <%# Math.Round(Double.Parse(CustDetails.FieldValue("BidAmount", Container))).ToString("F") %>

I have no other server side code on the page.

Can anyone help with this problem

the error message simply states that the string CustDetails.FieldValue("BidAmount", Container) could not be parsed as a double

try to view the value of that column (display it in a message box for example)

Tourist_Search,
Try this :
<%# Math.Round(Double.Parse((CustDetails.FieldValue("BidAmount", Container)).ToString())).ToString("F") %>

A little bit faster code would be:

<%# Math.Round(Convert.ToDouble (CustDetails.FieldValue("BidAmount", Container))).ToString("F") %>
