I have a SQL Table Column whos data type is money...

Problem I am having is that it chops off zero's
WHen I convert the money to Double if the money is 3.5000 t nds up 3.5 but I need it to be 3.50.

Anyone know how I can do this in the conversion

if ur money is

3.54600 it will show as 3.546 and if its
3.00000 it will show as 3

I need the value to display in a standard dollar format

2.00
3.00
3.50
3.70

not
2
3
3.5
3.7

So in short I want my variable to hold onto two decimal places in the number regardless of whether they are zero's or not. I dont want it it truncating it. I need to know how to do this.

The Solution I was looking for was actual a problem of presenting the data in the presentation layer. Basically I needed to convert the doubel to a string("c"0

double d = 2.5;
string s = d.ToString("c");

s = $2.50

string str = double.ToString("0,0.00");
