I am binding a data grid to an sql table and one of my columns is a currency. Is there anyway that I can format that one column when it is being loaded?

How are you trying to format it, alignment, font, etc.  If that is the case you can do it programmatically.

With datagrid

.Columns("currency").HeaderText = "Price"

.Columns("currency").DefaultCellStyle.Font = New Font FontFamily.GenericSansSerif, 10.0F, FontStyle.Bold)

.Columns("currency").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = Forms.DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleRight

End With

Then I believe for sql, if you store a value in a database table as currency it will return with extra decimal places, example 10.99 - 10.9900, so what will have to do is format those prices as well.  What you could to is use a dataview and then use a for loop to go through each of the rows and reformat it.

me.m_dv as dataview

For i As Integer = 0 To Me.m_dv.Count - 1

Me.m_dv(i).Item("currency") = Format(Me.m_dv(i).Item("currency"), "0.00")

Next

I hope this is what you were looking for.
