Function that converts an expression into a Decimal (Number.)
Syntax CDec (expression)
The Decimal data type stores numbers from -10^28-1 through 10^28-1.
If an ADP file is used (with SQL Server) this increases to -10^38-1 through 10^38-1
CDec cannot handle Null values, use Nz() to convert Nulls to a valid number.
Unlike most similar functions, you cannot use CDec() in a Query, the workaround is to write a custom function.
Dim dblDemo as Double
dblDemo = CDec(12 * 0.000001)
