I Need to display a number with commas and decimal point. Eg: Case 1: Decimal number is 432324 (This does not have commas or decimal Points) Need to display it as 432,324.00 but not 432,324. Case 2: Decimal number is 2222222.22 (This does not have commas) Need to display it as 2,222,222.22. I tried ToString('#,##0.##'). What will I learn? How commas can make the meaning of a phrase or sentence clearer.Questions: How did the meaning of the phrase 'pink zebra crossing' change. The comma, is a punctuation mark that appears in several variants in different languages. It has the same shape as an apostrophe or single closing quotation mark in many typefaces, but it differs from them in being placed on the baseline of the text. Some typefaces render it as a small line, slightly curved or straight but inclined from the vertical. Other fonts give it the appearance of a miniature filled-in figure 9. The Rule for Using Commas with 'Which' and 'Who' When the information provided by the clause starting with 'which' or 'who' is required to define the person (or thing), then there are no commas. If the clause provides just additional information, then use commas. Commas can be used to separate a parenthesis from the rest of the sentence. (A parenthesis is additional information that is not essential to the meaning of the sentence, i.e., it could be removed.) It is also possible to use dashes or parentheses (brackets) to offset a parenthesis. Commas, parentheses, and dashes are types of parenthetical.
