Default Form Fields formatting

I am using Word XP. Is there a way to format a number form field in a
protected form differently than the formats provided in the form field
options? I would like to format the number with a dollar sign, but without
a comma between the thousands and hundreds.

Thanks,

Ricki Miles

You can customize the number mask using the same interchangeable bits used
in the samples provided.

Thanks for the response. I have tried customizing the form field options
format box by removing the comma from the $#,##0.00 format, but then I get a
decimal in the wrong place and the number represented is wrong. Thanks,

Ricki
