I&#039m new to web design and ASP so this may be a basic question. Setting up a company intranet web page and am using a ms access db for the data source. Doing &#039simple&#039 searches. However, when the response come back, the number formatting that I&#039ve created in Access is lost in my page. For example, in Access my numeric data looks like this 1,589. When it gets to the page, written in HTML, it looks like this: 1589. Or a number in Access appears as this: (34,568). In the web page it looks like this:<BR>-34568.450000.<BR>Where do you think the problem is, besides my inexperience?<BR>Thanks very much,<BR>Joe<BR>
