Hi,

I have a resulted value from db, such as

PricePerSqFt.Text = String.Format("{0:$#,##0.00}", reader["PSF"]);

Before I convert it into string, I need to perform some formula to the value, say, I want to * 100 to "PSF".  How can I do this?  thanks

Assuming the value of reader["PSF"] is a double?
PricePerSqFt.Text = String.Format("{0:$#,##0.00}", Convert.ToDouble(reader["PSF"]) * 100);

Open in new window

You can convert to other data types as needed.
