    When I query for a sum of a column I am getting the following:
    1.1052E+11
    How do I get this to come out as $1,105,200.00......?

    there are 2 points
    1) getting the whole number (not ...E+..) is done by changing the value of the numwidth parameter (set numwidth 20)
    2) getting the $, '.', and ',' is done with to_char :
    select to_char (column,'$999G999G999D00)
    from table;
    (with enough 999 of course)
