How would I code in VBA from MS Access 2003 so that My values in Column(5) and Column(6) display as 0.00?

In my SQL I'm outputting this to the listbox
This is my listbox as it displays right now
I want the 40.00 displayed etc...

The listbox always displays text.
You will have to adjust the stored procedure to produce the formatted output as strings as Format would do:

  Format(40, "0.00") => 40.00
