How to format a string of percentage format to decimal format ?

How to format a string of percentage format to decimal format ?

1    orginalValue  // value will be 1265.48
2    percentString // value after applying percentage format will be 126548 %
3    requiredvalue // value should be 1265.48

I converted the string from orginalValue to percentString, now i need to convert back to requiredvalue.

Is there any way to do ?

Date format not formatting.
Ok so I searched previous posts to find how to remove the time stamp from the date field in grid view. So I raced to get the code put into the works, and it does not work for me. My code:<asp:BoundField DataField="SubmittedDate" HeaderText="Submitted Date" SortExpression="SubmittedDate" DataFormatString="{0:MM/dd/yy}" > Now does it matter if it's pulling form an Access DB? I have yet to switch it over to SQL for personal reasons but I really cannot see a reason why it would not be working. When it populates the field it still comes up as '11/17/2006 12:00:00am'. Am I doing some...

Format bug in String.Format() method?
I think I found a bug."{0:#0.00}" supposed to yeild 2 decimal places always right?This doesn't work (at lease not with the decimal type).  I tried multiple cases and it just doesn't do anything to the format.It's weird.  I tried "{0:#,##0.00}" and it works for ONLY values > 1000.  Anything < 1000, it doesn't do any formating whatsoever. Anyone else experience this? I don't think it is a bug."{0:#,##0.00}" works for ONLY values > 1000.It is right because you specify three '#' and one '0...

Input string was not in a correct format for Formatted Currency
Ok, when I bind a textbox in my FormView I'm changing the format to currency (<%# Bind("TotalValue","{0:c}") %>).  When I click Update I get "Input string was not in a correct format" since TotalValue is Int32 data type. Shouldn't it convert it back to Int32 when it updates the db?  Or do I have to do it manually, and if so how? Money should not be int in the database because you need decimal places, so you use money, smallmoney, decimal and numeric for money.  Try the link below for currency related formatting in .NET.  Hope this helps.http://msdn.micro...

.NET Date Format to Oracle Data Format
