0 stands for a digit
# stands for a digit, except for leading or trailing zeros
. is the decimal placeholder, regardless of region
, separates the thousands, regardless of region

The actual printed decimal and thousands separators ARE regional.

other characters are printed as is.

Format(8315.4, "00000.00") gives  08315.40
Format(8315.4, "#####.##")         8315.4
Format(8315.4, "##,##0.00")        8,315.40
Format(315.4,"$##0.00") $315.40
