Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Showing Currency Values

I am using VB as a front-end to an Access 2.0 database. Some of the fields in my Access db are of type currency. However, VB only displays them as numbers (I am not using data bound controls to populate the fields on my form, I am using code). How can I get VB to display them as currency (i.e with the dollar sign and decimal point)?

You can use the Format() functions to convert them to strings. Look at the help for those functions for more information.
