# Val

## Using the Val Function

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the Val Function.

The Val function returns the numbers contained in a string as a numeric value of appropriate type.

=Val( string )

string any valid string expression

The Val function recognizes only the period (.) as a valid decimal separator. When different decimal separators are used, as in international applications, use CDbl instead to convert a string to a number.

In this example we will use "1615 198th Street N.E.".

The result is 1615198.

Query

The results using a Query would be

```	SELECT Val("1615 198th Street N.E.");
```

FORM

In a Form you could set the Default Value of a Textbox to

```	=Val("1615 198th Street N.E.")
```
VBA

In a Form add a TEXTBOX control and rename it "txtVal", then you could add the following in the Load Event.

```	Private Sub Form_Load()
txtVal = Val("1615 198th Street N.E.")
End Sub
```
