How can output a double or decimal with 2 numbers after the decimal, and a comma when it's supposed to for every 3 digits?  I also don't want a $ dollar sign.  

When I so String.Format("{0:c}" ) it give the dollar sign I don't want.

When I do Math.Round(myVariable) I don't get the comma at every 3rd digit.

Is there

HI,

Use this.

string.Format("{0:0,0.00}",12345332.8)

This gives output as,

12,345,332.80


This is exactly you want, i think

Good luck.
Chintan.
