The format of the data does not display any formatting such as $ or , normally available in other controls using the Text( XXX,"$##,#") Formatting.

Thank you for the prompt reply.

When attempting to format the content of the Data Table value I receive the following Error Message.

Hey, I'm assuming that the number stored in your collection is not a number then, it could be a string. Try this:


Or it could be the two 0's you put on the end instead of using ##?





Let me know how you get on.

If that doesn't work, I'm afraid I'll be stiff out of answers sorry.

Thanks for the help.

I still have not been able to format the data.

I have used the format you suggested many times with normal Text boxes. \But, since this is a data table control there may be different formatting syntax.


FYI here is the most recent error message.

Hi BHerz,


As you are using Data table control, I am afraid it might be not possible to format the data in Data table control.


Please check the two parts “Now available” and “Not yet available” in this doc for a reference:
