Object Title is a Long

I have a Long variable called ImageName that can go anywhere from 0 to infinity. It works with the following code that is designated to make a new image:

Set myImage = FormName.Controls.Add("VB.image", ImageName)

There is one problem though; ImageName must be a string, therefore an error is present if it is a Long. So basically, my question is, how can I do it so ImageName is a long?

Have you try str(ImageName)?

yes I have, but when I write str(imagename) it returns the number but with a space at the beginning, which then makes it an invalid image control name. How can I fix that little space?
do trim(str(imagename))
