vb.net textbox decimals


In vb.net I'm trying to save my values with the following decimal format in to an access database but as soon as I type in to the textbox (double number format) the 175.00 becomes 175 and is saved that way also in the database. I'm not using any rounding so I don't understand why the .00 is being removed.

It's a question of preference as the user wants the numbers displayed this way

thank you

Please show the code.

Use the Fixed Point with 2 decimals or use "C2" for currency 2 decimals
Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim DNumber As Double
        DNumber = Convert.ToDouble(TextBox1.Text)
        Label1.Text = DNumber.ToString("F2")
    End Sub

Why not saving as 175 and display as 175.00 (using numeric formats either in VB or Access)?
