Hi ,

Not sure if this is still working correctly , I am also trying to just split a float to 2 decimal places using the following...

 dim f#
f# = 123.779000
print format$("%f.2",f#)

the code above results in : 123.779000.2

is this a bug? or how do i obtain 2 decimal places ?

Many Thanks
Luke

look up 'C printf' it follows the same rules except only one variable is allowed. I think it should be "%.2f"
