Display Currency Information Correctly

Display Currency Information Correctly

Question:

I am writing an online order form in ASP. How can I restrict the value of vartax to a two decimal digit (round up to two decimal points)? Most of the time vartax displays more than a 10 decimal digit. Here is a portion of my ASP code:

'----- Following  ------<%	if Request.Form("tax3")= "on" then	vartax=vartotal*0.06125	else	vartax=0	end if%><%Response.Write "$" & vartax%>

Answer:

Use the FormatCurrency function to return a value neatly formatted as a currency.

Response.write FormatCurrency(vartax)

The look and appearance of the currency value will be obtained from your computer’s Regional Settings Currency tab.
