Hey,

How would I go about changing a string into this format:
56.45

I have tried String.Format("{0:C}", Cost), but it still comes out with more than two after decimal numbers.

I have a lot of strings that contain numbers, so converting each to a double would be a lengthy process. Any easy ways?

Thanks!
Jessee

either this, or using string manipulation:
        Dim num As String = "12.454353"
        Dim s As String = num.Substring(0, num.IndexOf(".") + 3)
s --> "12.45"

Is it possible to do it without creating another string? For example
Dim num As String = "12.454353"
num = Format(Double.Parse(num), "#.##")
