Hi Lance,

We can also use the CLng function.

MsgBox(CLng("&Hff"))

Please refer to the following URLs for the detailed information regarding
this issue

Hi Jacob,

I'm curious.

What is Microsoft Online Partner Support ?
What's MSFT?
And why do you have "This posting is provided "as is" with no warranties

MSFT = Microsoft.
And why do you have "This posting is provided "as is" with no

Maybe we should include that in our signatures too.

Hi, Fergus

Microsoft Online Partner Support is the name of the team at Microsoft where
Jacob works.

As Herfried said:

This is known as a disclaimer. Since Microsoft is a large company with
substantial assets, this is one tactic that our legal department has us use
to prevent lawsuits.

Hi John,

Thanks for the info. If I understand correctly, the disclaimer is there
because you are official MS people but offering an unofficial comment.

I was wondering if you'd tell me more about MOPS - who, where, what, how,
etc. For instance: Is there a web site? (I don't mean
http://support.microsoft.com/, as that is for customers seeking support - I
mean one that's about and for the poeple involved).

Specificially, I'm curious about your role in these newsgroups. Do you
[MOPSters] pop in on a personal basis, as you feel like it, or is it a regular
part of the role? If the latter, is it a dedicated role or just part and
parcel amongst a range of operations?

Regards,
Fergus

Hi, Fergus

Everyone at Microsoft is supposed to be involved in the community. For
most teams it's a limited role, but Jacob and I spend most of our time in
the newsgroups trying to help out.

Hope this helps clarify things,
