Good Day Experts!

I am hoping you can help with a good way to achieve my results.  I have values that I want to insert a decimal point at the end.  For example, 45634 I would like to have 456.34. The variable holding 45634 is decimal.  

Is there an "easy" to put a decimal point in front of the 34? Or do I have to convert to a string and parse apart and then put it back together?

Thanks,

You can just do something like...

Dim decValue as Decimal = CDec(45634) / 100

...and you can replace '45634' with a variable.  This will work as long as the last two digits are always after the decimal point.
