I'm doing some match on two field and would like to return X decimal places.

Right now I'm getting values like  

.71 / 481,534.86   = 1.4744519223385E-06

What I want to return is .0000015

Ideas?

Dim numVal As Double
numVal  = .71 / 481,534.86
MsgBox Format(numVal ,"0.0000000")  ' for 0.0000015
'MsgBox Format(numVal ,"#.0000000")  ' for .0000015
