Hello,

I have a text box linked to a cell.  The cell is formatted as currency with no decimals. The text box is not formatted as currency and goes 4 place after the decimal.  

How do I get the text box to be formatted as currency with no decimal places?

Thank you.

Your best best might be to create a second cell that reads =ROUND(J3,2)

(J3 is the cell I used as your 4 decimal place value to test this out.)

This will give you a 2 decimal place value that you can then link your text box to.
