I am unfortunately one of the 'missing post' victims and this was more or less the text of the original post:

I am a rank beginner at VB and I am in the process of teaching myself from a variety of self help books. So far I have been content to familiarise myself with the various objects and what they do. I did attempt this: (eg) lblOne.caption=textmessage1.text * 10/100 in an attempt to get a percenatge but how do I dound the total off to 2 decimal points?

Unfortunately the book I am using devotes pages and pages to explaining 'dim statements' but no examples. Are there any tutorials available on the net in this respect?

All help will be appreciated... regards
