Hello,
I am using VB inserting data into a sql server table. one of the values is in a label, but needs to go into a "money" column.

I'm using the following parameter to convert it but it is not working. Any ideas?

error says,  input string not in correct format

 Cmd2.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("Amount", Convert.ToDouble(Label2.Text)))

hmmm, what about cdec then, convert to decimal

 Cmd2.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("Amount", CDec(Label2.Text)))

or format as currency

 Cmd2.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("Amount", Format(Label2.Text, "Currency")))
