Crystal reports format number

I have the following problem when the value is returned to the screen the number show like 2,009 how do I rid of the comma? Is there a format function?

Dim MonthInt as number
Dim MonthString as String
Dim yearString as Number
MonthInt = Month({StaffProjVar;1.Begin date})

MonthInt = (MonthInt + 11)

If (Monthint) <= 12 then
    MonthString = MonthName(MonthInt)
    MonthInt = MonthInt - 12
    MonthString = MonthName(MonthInt)
    YearString = (Year({StaffProjVar;1.Begin date}) + 1)
End If  

Formula = (MonthString + " " + (Cstr(YearString)))

You can format your object by right-clicking on it, select Format Object, and from the Number tab, select the format without the comma -1123

Unfortunately the Formula is returning a string so the number tab is not an option.
I need to fromat it before it is returned.

have you tried:
Formula = (MonthString + " " + replace(Cstr(YearString),',',''))

Still didn't work, It seems as though the field is being converted to currency on tyhe yeild function this is CR 2008 maybe it is a bug?
You can use the CStr to not insert the ,


mlmcc's solution will work or you can do a totext(YearString,'0')

You can streamline this formula to one line and get the result you want like this:

formula = cstr(dateadd("m",11,{StaffProjVar;1.Begin date}),"MMMM yyyy")

There is no need to break things down into months and years.  You can just add 11 months to the date, then format it MonthName and Year using the CStr function
