I am doing a mail merge in word from a excel spreadsheet. In the spreadsheet there are cells with dollar values. When I do the merge the trailing zeros are dropped. For example in excel the cell contains $100.00 or $100.10 when I do the merge I only see $100 or $100.1  How do I get the trailing zeros?

Use formatcuurency function, as in:

oldvalue = 100.1
oldvalue = FormatCurrency(oldvalue, 2)
MsgBox oldvalue

I think you're a bit off topic.

You need to include a picture switch in the mailmerge field:

{MERGEFIELD number \# $####0.00}
