Hi rowmark,
Try use "&" sign instead of "+" for the string combinations.
eg:
For Each dr In dtEroles.Rows
                    If EroleIDs.Length > 0 Then EroleIDs &= ","
                    EroleIDs &= "'" & dtEroles.Rows(0)(0).ToString() & "'"
                Next

I wrote a sample code : which worked correctly ,so it will double gets converted into string. The only reason it fails when the vulue you are trying to convert is not a number Or a null value
Dim str As String = ""
 Dim dt As New DataTable
        dt.Columns.Add("test")
        Dim dr As DataRow
        dr = dt.NewRow()
        dr("test") = "DoubleString"
        dt.Rows.Add(dr)
 
For Each dr1 As DataRow In dt.Rows
            str += str + "'" + dr1(0).ToString() + "'"
        Next

 Try

dr(0).ToString() instead of   dtEroles.Rows(0)(0).ToString()

>>>EroleIDs = +"'" + dtEroles.Rows(0)(0).ToString() + "'"
It may be caused by the =+ operation in the above line.
