This may be done by your decimal separator defined in the control panel that
is not a ".".

Use this:

My_single = Single.Parse(My _string,
System.Globaliz ation.NumberFor matInfo.Invaria ntInfo)

There is no conversion directly from a string to a single, as a string
is not a numeric type. What you have to do is to parse the string. There
are some different methods for that.

This will just parse the string, and gives an exception if it can't:

My_single = Single.Parse(My _string)

This will try to parse the string, and gives you the opportunity to
handle the situation if it can't be parsed:

If Single.TryParse (My_string, My_single) Then
' ok; My_single contains the value
Else
' could not be parsed
End If
