vb 6.0 --> In vb code, VLookup using Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup() returning 82.00 instead of 82.327, 75.00 instead of 75.728 .. etc..

In vb 6, I'm doing a VLookup which references an excel range...    using Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(parmInvestName, rngFind, 1, False)  , but it keeps returning the whole # without the decimal..    but i need the decimal.

This is urgent question as I'm not very familiar with vb syntax..   i've tried changing from Double to Long and everything else, but it still doesn't return the decimal places for a double type..  here is example of one of my attempts  :  

Public Function FindPutDeltaRefSecond(parmInvestName As String) As Long
    Dim rngFind As Range
    Set rngFind = RefData.Option.TablePutData
    On Error GoTo Terminate
    FindPutDeltaRefSecond = CLng(Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(parmInvestName, rngFind, 3, False))
    Set rngFind = Nothing
End Function

I tried using different combinations using   CDbl, CLng, and then trying to Format(x, "#00.00") the Double as a string..  still nothing but zeroes to the right of decimal is returned.    In the spreadsheet, the numbers I'm doing the VLookup to retrieve look like this ...  


Instead I keep getting this returned in VLookup..

To confirm and no offence meant ...

When producing as a double you set both the return type and the conversion to double?

Public Function FindPutDeltaRefSecond(parmInvestName As String) As Double
    FindPutDeltaRefSecond = CDbl(Application.WorksheetFunction.VLookup(parmInvestName, rngFind, 3, False))

Yean I know what you're saying, i've tried everything..     i thought maybe for some reason the input retrieved from spreadsheet possibly was read in as a string..    I've tried multiple combinations to try to get the correct data when debugging..
