Convert data types within VBA and VB6.

Procedure List

Procedure Name

Type

Description

(Declarations) Declarations Declarations and private variables for the modDataConversion module
AtLeast Procedure Get the greater of two values
AtMost Procedure Get the lesser of two values
VarToRoundLong Procedure Converts the passed variant to a long integer and rounds it using arithmetic rounding. Nulls are returned as 0.
DelimitSendKeys Procedure Fixes sendkeys statements by delimiting magic characters. This procedure converts a string to a SendKeys compatible format. Several characters have special meaning to the Sendkeys actions. This procedure delimits any occurrences of those special characters by wrapping them in braces {}.
NullIfZero Procedure Get Null if the passed value is zero, otherwise returns the passed value.
NullIfZLS Procedure Get Null if the passed value is a zero-length string (""), otherwise returns the passed value.
OverpunchedStringToNumber Procedure Converts a "zoned overpunch" number to a regular number. Many mainframe and minicomputer systems written in COBOL and other languages use a numeric format known as zoned overpunch. The numbers consist of normal ASCII characters, except that the last character indicates the sign of the number. For example, the following "number": 12345 F is actually: 123456 and 12345 O is actually: -123456. Decimal places are implied. A positive zero is "{" and a number ending in a negative zero is "}".
VarToCurrency Procedure Converts the passed variant to a currency value, 0 if the passed value is Null.
VarToDouble Procedure Converts the passed variant to a double, returning 0 if the passed value is Null.
VarToInteger Procedure Converts the passed variant to an integer, returning 0 if the passed value is Null
VarToLong Procedure Converts the passed variant to a long integer, returning 0 if the passed value is Null
VarToString Procedure Converts the supplied variant to a string. Nulls are returned as a zero-length string ("")
ZeroIfNull Procedure Get zero if Null is passed, otherwise returns the passed value. For Access/VBA, use the built in NZ command instead
ZLSIfNull Procedure Get a zero-length string ("") if Null is passed, otherwise returns the passed value.

Example Code for Using Module: DataConversion
