Hi,

Please assist how can we create a sub that will change the data inside a textbox to place a comma, like how the currency works?

i.e.
Text1.Text=350000
CommaText(Text1.Text,True)

Result:
Text1.Text=350,000

CommaText(textbox name, True to place comma or False to remove comma)

Thanks.

Function CommaText(sValue as string, bToggle as boolean) as String

if bToggle then
  CommaText=Format(sValue, "##,##0")  
else
  CommaText=Format(sValue, "####0")  
end if

End Function

Will that also work if the value was more than a thousand? 1,000,000

Works on any size input:
? Format(10000000000000000, "##,##0")  
10,000,000,000,000,000
