Format/Formatinfo of datagrid (vs2003) not formating the data

Hi there,

I have a datagrid setup and its working but its not showing the thousand separater (which in spain we use the . rather than the ,)

so hence 10000 would be represented like so 10.000

I have some code which i thought would work but it isn't. This column i have has values that exceeed 10000 for example.. here is my code

                  System.Globalization.CultureInfo SpanishCultureInfo=
                        new CultureInfo(0x0C0A);
     
                  ts = new DataGridTableStyle();
                  ts.MappingName="Record";
                  
                  style2=new DataGridTextBoxColumn();
                  style2.MappingName="NUM_TITULOS";
                  style2.HeaderText="Titulos";
                  style2.Alignment = HorizontalAlignment.Right;
                  style2.FormatInfo = SpanishCultureInfo;
                  style2.Format = "c";
                  ts.GridColumnStyles.Add(style2);

All the other stuff in the style2 is working i..e Right Alignment, mapping and headertext etc-... the formatinfo/format doesn't seem to be working... as in that column all values are not expressed with the . (dot) as the thousand separater

Can anyone help?

Maybe the column is of type STRING..... but should that make a difference?

Thanks in advance

Ian
