Hi there,

Can anyone help?

I have a string but it contains numbers i.e. 3000000

I would like to format it to 3,000,000 but remembering it isn't a integer ... it is already a string,

I did try this, Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0:n}",row["NUM"].ToString()));

But it still returns 3000000

Should i convert it to an integer first or something? can it not work on strings????

Thanks in advance

Ian

How about:

   Console.WriteLine("{0:#,###,###}", Int32.Parse(val));
