SQL.  SQL 2000

How do I format a dollar amount to include the commas:

I have this statement:

Select   '$' + CONVERT(varchar(12), CAST(isnull(sum(totvalue),0) as numeric(10,2) ))  from vwtotvalue

Which returns $13892.32 , but I would also like it to have the commas:  $13,892.32

NO.  That didn't return any commas.
