I am trying to format a number. According the the convert() documentation:, CONVERT ( data_type [ ( length ) ] , expression [ , style ] ), for type money, style 1 should give me: "Commas every three digits to the left of the decimal point, and two digits to the right of the decimal point; for example, 3,510.92."

I have tried: convert(money,earningsAmount,1) and convert(varchar,cast(earningsAmount as money),1)

both give me e.g. 1735.3400 whereas I am looking for 1,735.34

What am I doing wrong?
