EVALUATE function

This is a spinoff question from Thread770-113109

What is the evaluate function?  It is not described in help.  Can you provide an example of it's useage. I could not get it to work no matter what kind of datatype I fed it.

RE: EVALUATE function

The Evaluate function allows you do dynamically build a string, which is a mathematical forumla.  The Evaluation function then allows you to run that function so to speak, something like the following:

dim TheFormula as String

TheFormula = "SQR(x^2+y^2)"
Result = Evaluate(TheFormula)

Good Luck
