What are you assigning your formatted currency to?

With your code:

xnum = double.Parse(lcost); ***** this is passed in *******
ynum = double.Parse(txtServiceCost.Text); ***** this is in the textbox
*****
znum = xnum + ynum;
txtResult.Text = znum.ToString("C");
ToString() is a method and it returns a string value in the format of a
currency. You have to put that string somewhere though!

Um, I did in my previous posting... ?

If 'znum' is a double, and 'txtResult' is the text box where you want
to put your formatted result, then you need this line:

txtResult.Text = znum.ToString("C");

Is this what you ment?
