This works, but their may be an easier way to write it
i am loading from a saved udt and a lot of the values need formatting as currency, but not all
gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1) = .tmpLost
    gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1) = Format(gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1), "Currency")
is there a better way to write this ?

Instead of

gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1) = .tmpLost
    gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1) = Format(gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1), "Currency")

just do

gridCardStats.TextMatrix(5, 1) = Format(.tmpLost, "Currency")
