hello,

does anyone know how i can convert a double without a negative ()

it seems i get (£50.00) - this is a negative value

but i like to have it as -£50.00

i use:

Code:
Dim l As Double
l = cDAL.VarToDbl(Label6.Text + Amount1) 'amount1 is a double
lblrunning.Text =  Format(l, "c")
cDAL:
Code:
Public Shared Function VarToDbl(ByVal o As Object) As Decimal

        Try
            Return Decimal.Parse(o.ToString)
        Catch
            Return 0
        End Try

    End Function
thank you
