convert Javascript to VB 6

I want to convert below Java script expression to VB 6.0:

return lead + "." +  dec + "E" +  logX;


(lead = 86
dec = 3799
logx = 3)



I want equivalent in VB 6.0 ?



Thanks

The expression would be

CStr(lead) &  "." & CStr(dec) & "E" & CStr(logX)


If it is with in a function then you need to assign this value to the name of the function

function test  as string
  test  = CStr(lead) &  "." & CStr(dec) & "E" & CStr(logX)
end function

My function is returning back as double...  Can we convert the output to double?

I assume it is a geographical information. Then it is wrong built.

86.3799 would be a valid value...

86.3799E3 would convert to 86379.9  as double. This is not a valid value

DIM myString
DIM myValue as Double

myString = CStr(lead) & "." & CStr(dec)

myValue = CDbl(myString)
myValue = myValue * (10^logX)

Now myValue should have a valid value. EXXX in a scientfic notation is doing nothing else than shifting the decimal point.
