Hi keith1001;

What are the rules for what is in the text box.

Will it always have a numeric values?
Will the last two digits always present and is the decimal part of the numeric value?

Yes it will always contain numeric values.
Yes the last two digits will always be present.

Examples:
"12345"  want to format it to show "123.45"
"7645" want to format it to show "76.45"

Hi keith1001;

Try this code snippet it should give you what you need

Dim FormattedStr As String = TextBox.Text

If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(FormattedStr) Then
    FormattedStr = (Decimal.Parse(FormattedStr) / 100).ToString("n2")    
End If

Open in new window

Change ToString("n2") to ToString("F2") will remove the commas.
