Sub-total and Grand Total not inserting as currency?

Sub-total and Grand Total not inserting as currency?

We're using:
Classic ASP / VBScript
DW 8.0.2
eCart 4.5.2
MSSQL Database (with "money" selected for our product price field)

When we insert either Sub-total or Total onto a page, it's not inserting as a currency value it just inserts as:
<%=WA_eCart_TotalColumn(SFCcart, "TotalPrice")%>

...which displays as:
0

How do we force the display as currency? Ta.

use the WA_eCart_DisplayMoney function, for example:

<%=WA_eCart_DisplayMoney(SFCcart, WA_eCart_TotalColumn(SFCcart, "TotalPrice"))%>

hand coded?

Is that an option within a menu in DW or do we just need to hand-code it?

Thanks Jason.

Getting a type mismatch when I change it to "WA_eCart_DisplayMoney"?
Could this be something to do with my selection of "money" as the field type in our MSSQL database?

The weird thing is, on another page where we have an "add to cart" button, the value displays fine as currency.

Comparing the two pages, I spotted that the intial page that's producing the type mismatch error didn't have the cart included at the top but when I insert the include files for the cart, it makes a red exclamation mark appear next to the eCart Object item in the Server Behaviours panel.

I guess I could add an add to cart button on the initial page, insert the currency value (basically I'm trying to add a mini-basket), then delete the add to cart button but...

Ha! I can just hear you Jason! :o)

Message received - albeit I answered it myself! D'oh!
