In is a reserved word in VB + SQL
Can you give an example of what context you wish to use it?

ln is natural log.

log() fn in vb is natural log itself.

so u can use it.

if u want log to the base 10, do a log(x)/log(10)

log is ln in VB.

log(e)=1

The closest thing to IN would be a case statement

select case (val)
    case  1 to 15: do something
    case 20,30,40,50: do something else
    case else:  not "IN" above"
end select

I know it's not exactly math, but it works as a replacemet.
ie "IF x in {1,5,34,34,36 } can translate to

if x = 1  or x=5 or x=34 or x=36 then
   do something
end if

(or)

select case x
case 1,5,34,34,36 : do something

hope that helps!
