in the query design grid, right click on the column for GrandUsage

in the Field Property Sheet, select Fixed in the Format property


you can also set the field property in the design view of the table

Use this format:

strBigNumber = Format(140620557.259401, "#,##0.00")

or use in the format property of the textbox:

  #,##0.00
