# Rouding a Double Value

Posted on 2006-07-17

I am having difficulty rounding a number and displaying it the way I wnat it

right now I have

dim pricem as double

I do some calculations using it

then I go

pricem = math.round(pricem, 2)

this will work fine and round the number to two decimal places, but if the number is 111.3 it won't display the extra zero on the end

I then tried going

pricem = formatcurrency(pricem, 2) thinking this would convert it to the currency format (which is what I am trying to represent) but it does not display the extra zero as well....

i'm confused...

Hi foobarr,

pricem = Math.Round(Pricem,2)
Msgbox Pricem.ToString("#.00")
