Hi,
   What's the best way to format a number for currency? The value 1.80 for example would be stored in a float as 1.8  

   What's the best way to do this? :)


Thanks,

Pete

I know, but I didn't see your comment when I posted mine, as I took a while to test the code. :/
Isn't there any way to delete comments?

Only fair that you both win. One gave me some examples, the other took the time to test it - so I doubled the points and halved them between you :)

Cheers for your help!
