How to format a calculated field on an Outlook form

Creating an Outlook form, and in using a formula to calculate a field, I cannot figure out how to apply a format to the field.  Example: I am multiplying a price and a quantity to yield a total cost.  The result is unformatted, so it shows "6" instead of $6.00.  I am using Outlook 2003 on Windows XP Pro.

Thanks

You need to add some code to the form to handle this.  Something like this:

Sub Item_CustomPropertyChange(ByVal Name)
    Dim olkInspector, olkPage
    Set olkInspector = Item.GetInspector
    'Change the page name on the next line as needed
    Set olkPage = olkInspector.ModifiedFormPages("Message")
    'Change the property name on the next two lines as needed
    If Name = "YourPropertyName" Then
        Item.UserProperties("YourPropertyName").Value = FormatNumber(Item.UserProperties("YourPropertyName").Value,2,False,False,True)
    End If
    Set olkPage = Nothing
    Set olkInspector = Nothing
End Sub
