vba word number formatting a textbox

Hi again experts,

Another quick question, i'm trying to find a way to format a few userform textbox's but no luck its for formatting it incorrect.

this is the code:

Private Sub txtvjhjp_AfterUpdate()

txtvjhjp.Text = Format(txtvjhjp.Value, "#.##0,00")

End Sub

Open in new window

The result is this: 7000,0000
when it should be this: 7.000,00

I'm also looking for a way to do it easier, there is a few textboxes that need this format is there an easier way, like simply right the textbox name on a list and it will put the form in them all, something like this:

Private Sub decimalseparator_AfterUpdate()

Format(value, "#.##0,00")
End Sub

Open in new window

no clue if this is possible at all but would make it easier and the code would be more clean i guess :)

thank you in advance

IrogSinta - I can't seem to fin that propety, is that in the propeties window?
It's the topmost property in the Format tab of the Property Sheet. If you put #,##0.00 in there it will automatically change to Standard
