I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That sounds difficult. It breaks the general rule that only allows one decimal point in a number display.

In my memory we once had pounds, shillings and pence (£sd) here in the U.K. but they weren't displayed in that manner but as £1 2s 6d (one pound, two shillings and sixpence = £1.125). We changed that in 1971, so that computers could cope.

What country's currency needs to be displayed in that manner, and what are the rules?
I have looked again at your question and I wonder if you meant to put '2,310.00' and mistyped it as '2.310.00' (dot instead of a comma).

If so then it is much simpler.

With the document unprotected, right-click on the text input form field and choose 'Properties' from the  context menu.
Select 'Number' as the Type and '#,##0.00" from 'Number format' list
