I need to make a number column that is already formatted as string to contain the "," and ".00" in the proper places.  Formatting as a number does not help b/c the excel sheet I am comparing this data too has string values that contain the comma and ".00".  also the numbers can be anything from 0 and up.

Keep the numbers as numbers and add another column with this formula which creates a string version with the desired formatting:
=TEXT(A1,"#,##0.00")
