VB SP5 behaviors different from SP4

I recently upgraded to VB SP5 from SP4.

However, occationally, I found there are some functions changed.

Give you an example:
if rsEntry("Amount") = $102000.25
( rsEntry is an ADODB.Recordset object )

on VB SP4:
Code ' if rsEntry!Amount < ("99999.99")'
would return FALSE

But on VB SP5:
Code ' if rsEntry!Amount < ("99999.99")' returns TRUE

I have to use ' if rsEntry!Amount < CCur("99999.99")' to get the correct value 'FALSE'

I couldn't have any luck from internet, and on microsoft's web site it's all about .NET.

Have anybody seen similar problems, or had information related to VB SP5 according to the function changes.

Any idea ?

Thanks.

what is the datatype of rsEntry("Amount")

from what i see, it is a String (are you storing the $)
if so, i'd suggest against that and just store it as a number.

You should include the CCur Function in your comparison as the compare value is a String.

The datatype of rsEntry("Amount") is a currency field.
