  1. Re: Whaaaat?! Int(x) doing something weird.

    Thanks everyone for your help. I am marking this thread as resolved.
  2. Re: Whaaaat?! Int(x) doing something weird.

    True. I just added that as a mod to the original line. Personally, I don't think I would have any use for the second version, since the whole point is to leave the number alone at however many...
  3. Re: Whaaaat?! Int(x) doing something weird.

    Hm...This seems to be much better. Forget everything else, just use:

    xx = Int(Val(Str(x)))

    For more user control over where the accuracy "trigger" point should lie:

    xx =...

    Good point. Thanks!
  6. Re: Whaaaat?! Int(x) doing something weird.

    Well, it ain't necessarily elegant, but I wrote this fault-tolerant Int() function, to address this vb issue:


    'Fault tolerant Int():

    Dim ResultFlag As Byte
    Dim TempLoop As Integer

    Passel...I think your test pretty much sums it up. The bummer is that Microsoft would let that ambiguity slip through. So vb is is displaying a rounded version of what it is actually using...
  9. Re: Whaaaat?! Int(x) doing something weird.

    System is Windows 7 Ultimate, 6.1.7600 Build 7600

    The equation to get value (ue) is:

    ue = (bx / vx)

    It then goes into:

    qx = (Int(ue)) + 1
  10. [RESOLVED] Whaaaat?! Int(x) doing something weird.

    Can anyone explain this? These values were taken from my Immediate window, and reflect what my program is doing ((ue) is a Double data type):


    ?ue
    2
    ?str(ue)
    2
    ?int(ue)

    Re: Problem passing an array from a function

    Yah, no go. In fact, it seems that I had to ReDim in the past, because declaring globally with, say, Public Xforms(10) as double, would itself cause the problem. Now, either way, no difference. So...

    I am having a hard time getting a function to accept an array passed to it, and returning values in another array to the procedure that called the function.

    Error 5 on Something so Simple

    Hi all.

    Does anyone know why this simple task will not work? When I try to do this simple operation:

    Dim A as Double
    Dim NewA as Double
    Dim Abby as Double

    A= -502.14
    Abby = 0.5

    When you say, "clear the error", what exactly does that mean. If I do:
