Elementary math (and VB help...) show that

Arcsin(X) = Atn(X / Sqr(-X * X + 1))

The Atn() and Sqr() functions are supported by Visual Basic

First to convert degrees to radians, multiply degrees by pi/180. To convert radians to degrees, multiply radians by 180/pi.

Arcsin(X) = Atn(X / Sqr(-X * X + 1))
