A text box get the text from and access database which in turn get the data from a DBF database, Anyhow one of the fields of this data supposed to have  a price which means like 2.45 or 4.67 etc..  however this data get into access without the decimal place and when I get into Visual basic also get without the decimal place. How can I get this format into a 2.45 or 4.67 etc into a textbox, knowing that always there two decimals. I don't want to touch the access or DBF databases I want to deal directly with VB and the textbox format

Hi teogos,

TheForm.TextBox1.Text = Format(DatabaseField / 100, "#,##0.00")
