How to Format a Number in Classic ASP

Hello,

In a Classic ASP application I have a value in a variable that contains a number in bytes (example 2389977645).  I want to display it so as it uses commas.  I have found the FormatNumber() function useless in this area.

Example preferred output: 2,389,977,645

What can you recommend?

Thanks,

Michael

I just tried:
Response.Write( FormatNumber("2389977645",0))

and it works.

This:

wscript.echo formatnumber ("12345",0)

produces 12,345 for me

What does it do for you?

Here's a reference for the command.  You may have to override some regional settings:

It depends on your regional settings but that should work:
<%= FormatNumber(myNumber,0) %>
