trying to determine why i get a type mismatch

betmode is either 0 or 1
1= currency
0= credits



Private Function CreditMode0String(ByVal credit As String, ByVal betMode As Integer)
    credit = IIf(InStr(credit, "$") > 0, CCur(Mid(credit, 2)), CCur(credit)) highlighted line
    'credit = CCur(Mid(credit, 2))
    CreditMode0String = credit / GetPriceByBetMode(betMode)
End Function

@kaufmed is probably right on target. I would add that if the variable credit is a numeric value that is used in many mathematical functions, you should store it as a single or double type so you do not have to test for the presence of the $ character every time. Any time you want to display the value of the credit variable, you can always use formatting to slap that $ symbol back on and add commas in proper positions if desired.

Thanks I gave mBetMode a value of 1 and now it works.
the program runs in different price denomitions eg;1cent,2cent, 5cent, 10 cent, 25cent
and can be displayed as currency or credits
