You can see some examples below: Although you can convert integers to dates, but it can’t be done vice versa.
Dates can only be converted to double and single data type: Now let us look at a few more practical examples where conversion is required. Cells(i, 1)) - 4) amount = amount CDbl(str Val) End If Next i Msg Box amount End Sub The amount can be then used further in your code.
In order to be able to do arithmetic operations on the numeric values you would need to convert the strings to numbers. It would be a good idea to check if the string you are working with is actually a numeric value before trying to convert it.

With ample understanding of these Excel tools, you’ll be master of your data. Office 2016 saw Power Pivot included and data modelling tool.
Power Pivot can handle large volumes of data imported from a variety of external sources, extending the functionality of the standard Pivot Table function.
First, we use the in-string function (In Str) to check whether the currency type is what we need.
If so, we remove the currency code (first four characters) from the string using the Right function.
Today we’re going to explore the realms of Power Pivot, Power Query, Power View, Power Map, and if we have a little time left over, cloud-based Power BI, the Excel Business Intelligence tool.
Use Power Pivot too: Power Pivot is in itself an important tool for Power BI.
The enhanced data tables and models you can build using Power Pivot, along with the seamless integration with Power View and Power Map, give you chance to uncover hidden trends, build business insight, and most importantly turn that wonderful raw data into something parsable. In the Manage box, at the bottom of the screen select COM Add-Ins, followed by Go.
Now we are left with only the amount, but in a string format and obviously we cannot perform the addition on it.
So, we use data type conversion by using the function: CDbl and finally we sum it up.
