Add does not work

Add does not work

Hi, not sure why this is not adding. Substract, divide and multiply all work but does not add, instead it puts the numbers together

Trim(Sess0.Screen.GetString(12, 59, 10)) + Trim(Sess0.Screen.GetString(14, 39, 12))


RE: Add does not work


Convert both string values to integer or some other numeric type. The PLUS sign will concatenate strings, while it seems that the other operators will force a string to number conversion prior to performing the math.

RE: Add does not work

ahhhh ok this worked fine...Thanks again Skip!

WorksheetFunction.Sum(Trim(Sess0.Screen.GetString(12, 59, 10)), Trim(Sess0.Screen.GetString(14, 39, 12)))

RE: Add does not work

Well, you posted in Attachmate, that has NOTHING to do with Excel, although you may be coding in VBA. In the Extra Basic editor you would...


CInt(Trim(Sess0.Screen.GetString(12, 59, 10))) + CInt(Trim(Sess0.Screen.GetString(14, 39, 12)))
