Type-Declaration character does not match declared data type Error Using Time$


I get Type-Declaration character does not match declared data type when the following line of code tries to execute:

Txt_Log.Text = Txt_Log.Text & Time$ & " - Com Port " & ComPort & " Opened."

I tried just copying this line to an empty program and it works fine... So what else could be causing the problem?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

All looks pretty standard... Maybe try CStr(Time) instead of Time$ though I don't see why that'd be a problem...
Can you post the function the line is in?

Time is a reserved word, are you using it as a variable name?
