Add integer variable to get total

Hello,
I'm trying to add two numbers together to get a total.
strInst1Fee is a string taken from sqldatareader from a MS SQL money column, but it reads as a string. I want to add $9.00 to that amount, but the $9.00 comes from another database query, so it could change to a different amount.

When I do this, it works:

Dim PriceTot As Integer
        If some variable = 1 Then
            PriceTot = strInst1Fee + 9
End If

PriceTot = 49

This is what I want to do but it does not work:
Dim PriceTot As Integer
        If some variable = 1 Then
            PriceTot = strInst1Fee + strMonthlyFee
End If

PriceTot = 49.00009.0000
but it cannot convert it to an integer, so I get error.

The code below is what I want, but it gives error.

Why does it not add the 2 numbers together like the 1st example? And how do I get it to add the 2 numbers to get 49, when using strInst1Fee + strMonthlyFee?


'get fees from teacher

        Dim strConn As String = "Data Source=mydatasource;Integrated Security=false;Initial Catalog=mycatalog;user ID=mysuer;Password=mypassword"

        Dim sql As String = "Select * From Teacher where TeacherID = @TeacherID"

        Dim conn As New SqlConnection(strConn)

        Dim objDR As SqlDataReader

        Dim Cmd As New SqlCommand(sql, conn)

        Cmd.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@TeacherID", Instrument1.SelectedValue.ToString()))

        conn.Open()

        objDR = Cmd.ExecuteReader(System.Data.CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)

        While objDR.Read()

            strInst7Fee = objDR("Inst7Fee").ToString()

           

        End While



        conn.Close()



        'get monthly admin fee to add to teacher fee

        Dim strConn2 As String = "Data Source=mydatasource.net;Integrated Security=false;Initial Catalog=mycatalog;user ID=usr;Password=password"

        Dim conn2 As New SqlConnection(strConn2)

        Dim objDR2 As SqlDataReader

        Dim Cmd2 As New SqlCommand(sql2, conn2)

        Cmd2.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@TeacherID", Instrument1.SelectedValue.ToString()))

        conn2.Open()

        objDR2 = Cmd2.ExecuteReader(System.Data.CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)

        While objDR2.Read()

            strMonthlyFee = objDR2("MonthlyFee").ToString()



        End While



        conn2.Close()



        'get fee for instrument from total of teacher fee plus admin fee

        'for monthly recurring billing

        Dim PriceTot As Integer

        If Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 1 Then

            PriceTot = strInst1Fee + strMonthlyFee

        ElseIf Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 2 Then

            PriceTot = strInst2Fee + strMonthlyFee

        ElseIf Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 3 Then

            PriceTot = strInst3Fee + strMonthlyFee

        ElseIf Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 4 Then

            PriceTot = strInst4Fee + strMonthlyFee

        ElseIf Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 5 Then

            PriceTot = strInst5Fee + strMonthlyFee

        ElseIf Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 6 Then

            PriceTot = strInst6Fee + strMonthlyFee

        ElseIf Teacher1.SelectedValue.ToString() = 7 Then

            PriceTot = strInst7Fee + strMonthlyFee

        End If

use convert
declare @s1 varchar(128), @s2 varchar(128)

select @s1='$49.0000', @s2='9.0000'

select convert(money, @s1)+convert(money, @s2)

Try this:

PriceTot = Val(strInst1Fee) + Val(strMonthlyFee)

If strMonthlyFee comes with $ sign as the first character, then try this:

PriceTot = Val(strInst1Fee) + Val(strMonthlyFee.SubString(1))
