I am trying to make a conversion tool for different units where i want to display number in exponential form if they exceed 1000(for eg if I/O 10001 then O/P 1.000E+04, if I/O 1000.1 then O/P 1.000E+03).Also for numbers less than 1 (if I/O 0.001 then O/P 1.000E-03, if I/O 9.84203533290685E-04 then O/P 9.842E-04.

Sorry if the qusetion is very simple but I am new to VB .net and pretty bad with maths.

You can use ToString on your number to set it's format as a string. Decimal d = 23.55454 d.ToString("N2") will show two decimal places. d.ToString("e") will show scientific notation.

Maths has nothing to do with it.

Math has something to do with it, deep under the hood :-) A 5.
