Dynamic Decimal Placement

I using this code that formats the number as I type. I would like to make more dynamic to be able to choose the format base on a variable enter in another textbox. Currently the format is hard coded to two zeros after the decimal. I would like to enter (ex. 3) and the format would show $0.000

Any suggestions?

Thanks


Code:
Dim v As String


Select Case Len(tbOPrice)
    Case 1
        tbOPrice = Format(tbOPrice, "$0\.00")
    Case Is > 1
        v = Replace(tbOPrice, "$", "")
        v = Replace(v, ".", "")
        tbOPrice = Format(CCur(v) / 100, "$#,#0.00")
    Case Else
End Select

Am no VBA expert, does this work?
You want something along the lines of

Code:
tbOPrice = Format(CCur(v) / 100, "$#,#0." & Right(10 ^ txtbox1,Len(10 ^ txtbox1)-1))
10^txtbox1 : If txtbox1 = 2, result is 100, if txtbox1 is 3 result is 1000
Performing a Right of that calculation using 1 less than the Length of it would knock the first digit off leaving 00 or 000 (I hope)
You can then concatenate that to your decimal "$#,#0."

How do I adjust the codes in red. I have to manually change the numbers in red from 2 zeros to 3 zeros so that it does not cause an error.

Code:
[COLOR=#574123]CCur(v) / [/COLOR][COLOR=#ff0000][B]100[/B][/COLOR]

Untested, but maybe this:

Code:
z = WorksheetFunction.Rept(0, textbox1.Value)
tbOPrice = Format(CCur(V) / 1 & z, "$#,#0." & z)

Hm, let's try this first:

Code:
Sub tryX()

z = WorksheetFunction.Rept(0, 3)
Debug.Print z
Debug.Print 1 & z
Debug.Print "$#,#0." & z

End Sub
The result in immediate window is:
000
1000
$#,#0.000

Isn't that what you expect?

when I type in a value (ex 1),

If the textbox variable is 2, the output should be $1.00
If the textbox variable is 3, the output should be $1.000

If I understand you correctly, maybe this:
Code:
Sub tryA()
x = 1 ' in tbOPrice
y = 3  'in the variable textbox

        V = Replace(x, "$", "")
        V = Replace(V, ".", "")
        z = WorksheetFunction.Rept(0, y)
        x = Format(x, "$#,#0." & z)

Debug.Print x
End Sub

Correct...this is the output I'm looking for. Now the challenge is to implement it into the original code
