Hi:
     Given the following string :

"$80.00"

I need to add this string to a number. I have tried using the Val function but I get a zero because of the dollar sign. Is there another function or procedure that I could use to covert the string to a number?

You could use FormatNumber ( It will handle the decimals correctly that way )

x = FormatNumber("$80.50", 2) ' the 2 stands for nums after digit
MsgBox x
