You could use the FormatNumber() function.  I think maybe:

FormatNumber(TheNumber, 2, 0, 0, 0)
0

In that case, FormatNumber(TheNumber, 2, -1, 0, 0) should do it

Why not simply divide by 100?

because it would make it 1.2
divide by 1000 would still make it

120,000

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim Samples As Variant
    Dim i As Integer
   
    Samples = Array("00001230", "00231232", "00000012")
    For i = 0 To UBound(Samples)
        Debug.Print Format$(Samples(i) / 100, "0.00")
    Next i
End Sub
