Hi,

Please dont worry about any DataAccess code and the rest.
I have the following code which displays to four decimal places.

                this.txtDiscountAmount.Text = Decimal.Parse( Convert.ToString(dataReader[0]), System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Currency).ToString(); //DiscountAmount      


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Cheers.
Steve

This might help

Decimal d = Decimal.Parse("12.12.4567",System.Globalization.NumberStyles.Currency);
d = Decimal.Round(d,2);
Console.WriteLine(d.ToString())

You could play with ToString to format your string
try this

this.txtDiscountAmount.Text = (dataReader[0]).ToString("C",new CultureInfo( "en-US", false ).NumberFormat);

It's just a simple change:

  this.txtDiscountAmount.Text = Decimal.Parse(Convert.ToString(dataReader[0])).ToString("0.00"); //DiscountAmount

Or, if you want seperators on the thousands, use:

  this.txtDiscountAmount.Text = Decimal.Parse(Convert.ToString(dataReader[0])).ToString("#,##0.00"); //DiscountAmount
