"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.

You can do couple of options, the one I used a lot in past, was

decimal dValue = 0.000000
d.toString("G29");

And from this blog: http://blog.zerosharp.com/how-to-remove-the-trailing-zeros-of-precision-from-a-c-number-decimal/

You can use the following extension method:
public static class DecimalExtensions
{
    public static Decimal Normalize(this Decimal value)
    {
        return value / 1.000000000000000000000000000000000m;
    }
}

Numbers don't have any trailing zeros.  Strings can do.  How are you formatting the number into a string?

It seems to be the case where the number is a Decimal and the precision specifier is omitted, fixed-point notation is always used and trailing zeros are preserved.
