HI,

i have a field (amount) in Access which is in STRING format (e.g. "200.1050").
How can i display it (in Access 2000 or above) with 2 dec. pl, the currency figure "200.11" ?

Details:
i tried =sum([amount]), it will actually sum up the "string".
i tried =val([amount]), it will show "#Error"
i tried =CCur([amount]), it will show "0"

Thanks all...

Hi Fiacre,
Val(Amount) should work
Check you don't have any extra spaces or Points
Good Luck!

I agree with Gary Val(amount) is they way forward on this one. You could try val(nz(amount)).

Are you sure your amount field is text?

Format([Amount], "Currency")

Unable to work yet.

The detail field is "det.amt"

data type "text"
field size: 16
required: no
allow zero len: no
indexed: no

it will show "#Error", even i tried wat's suggested..."Val(amt)", Format(Val(...)), etc.
