I have a decimal variable that I need to convert to a string  that has only 2 decimal places.

Convert 25.69624953583364277757148162

To "25.69"

What is the c# expression?

Thanks

Hi.

If you have a decimal variable, you can use the ToString() method.
MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0b22a4x2.aspx

It uses the standard numeric format codes.
MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dwhawy9k.aspx
Just pick the format that matches your intended use. For example, ToString("C2"), ToString("F2"), or ToString("N2") where the 2 represents the number of decimal places.
