vb number format

I have a number that looks like this


00001230

what I need is a code that will format it like this


12.30

now sometimes the number will be

00231232

should be
2312.32

meaning always two on the right and 4 on the left

any ideas

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

FormatNumber(TheNumber, 2, 0, 0, 0)
0
 
peanut1010Author Commented:
also if it is like this


00000012

should be 0.12
0
 
MannSoftCommented:
In that case, FormatNumber(TheNumber, 2, -1, 0, 0) should do it
0
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

00000120

0.120

doing

120.00

Why not simply divide by 100?

peanut1010Author Commented:
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

try this

Val(MID("00001230",1,6))  & "." & Val(MID("00001230",7,2))
