    Re: The UK Election

    I'm curious to exactly what you mean by this statement.

    1) Which ideology are we being driven through?
    2) By what measure are we 'poorer than ever'?

    I don't like the tories, certainly not the May led administration we've got but I definitely see it as a lesser evil than the Social dystopia promised by the Cobynites.

    I think May should have gone after the election but instead she's hanging on like a lame duck, but maybe that's because they don't have anyone to replace her with.

    Re: [RESOLVED] Val(True) = 0. Why?

    The advantage of Val() though is that you can chuck anything at it (nearly) and get a number at the end without errors, even NULLs. In my case, I had a variant. A limitation with VB6 is you have no...

    [RESOLVED] Val(True) = 0. Why?

    We all know that in vb6, boolean values are True = -1 and false = 0.

    But if you wrap a boolean value in a Val function, it always returns 0, whatever it's original value.

    Val(-1) = -1.
