Hi Guys,
I am currently using (Item.Format = "$ %s") to format my data as currency. This is fine except that my data is stored in a decimal value and the report control shows 4 0's. i.e. "$ 100.0000".

What format can I use to only show 2 decimal places?

Hi,
 
Try this:

    .Format = "$ %.2f"

Thanks Aaron! Unfortunately I already tried this and after reading the docs I realize why. Only the "%s" type is supported with the Format method.  This means that the Format method will only format strings and treats all numeric values as strings.

I am experimenting with converting my decimal to a string prior to adding it to the report with string.Format("{0:0.00}",_value).

I would prefer to be able to supply the decimal value to the report control and allow it to do the formatting.

Strangely I have also noticed that when a format is applied the groupformulas SUMSUB does not work. Does this mean that I need to supply values for both the .Value and .Caption of each item so that the groupFormulas are working on an un-formatted value. Is there a better way to do this?

Hi mar72vin. I prefer to do the formatting on the Metrics in the BeforeDrawRow-event.

Metrics.Text =string.Format("{0:0.00}",_value).

Then I leave the .value and .caption "untouched" and the groupFormulas are working fine

You should set the properties .Value for the unformatted value and the .Caption for the formatted value.
The .Format-Property excepts also VB-Formats like "$#,##0.00;$-#,##0.00"
