Hoe to format a double datatype

I trying to format the PositionValue1 inside a text file. I want the calculated value in PositionValue1 to only show "xx.xx" decimal places. I tried the ToString methode however that only return the values of "00.00"
Public PositionValue1 As Double
 
PositionValue1 = CStr(_12ArrayList_Position(intInnerLoop))
                    strText += PositionValue1 & vbTab & CStr(_12ArrayList_Completed(intInnerLoop)) & vbCrLf

If the data is coming in as a string, then you could do double.parse(myString).  Not sure if that will drop the ending decimals if they are zero though...

try something like this...

Debug.Print(Format(PositionValue1 , "00.00"))

If showing only two digits after decimal point is what you are trying to do, then use the Math.Round function

Math.Round(123.3211, 2) ' would be 123.32
