In a VBA module(function) how do I get the value from a combobox?

In a VBA module(function) how do I get the value from a combobox?

(OP)
I am working in Access and have created a function. I now need to set a variable in the function to the value of the combobox from an Access form.

RE: In a VBA module(function) how do I get the value from a combobox?

Just pass the value.
For Example:

Public Function GetValue(intValue as Integer) as Integer
     GetValue = intValue + 100
End Function

On the After Update event of the combo box put the following:
If Not Isnull(Me.ComboBox) Then x = GetValue(Me.ComboBox)


So if the value in the combo box was 25, then you would pass 25 to the GetValue Function.

In the Function, the intValue parameter now becomes 25
The function would then return 125, so now x = 125
