You can turn it into a string by putting empty after it:

   put 1.55555 into tVar -- number
   set the numberformat to "0.00"
   add 1 to tVar -- still a number
   put tVar into fld 1 -- numberformat applied now, field contains a 
string "2.55"
   add 1 to tVar -- still a number, contains 3.55555
   put empty after tVar -- numberformat applies, tVar is a string
