PRB: "Type Mismatch" Error Using CLng() with Hex Value

Article ID: Q105648
Creation Date: 22-OCT-1993
Revision Date: 01-DEC-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 7.0, 97

SYMPTOMS


Advanced: Requires expert coding, interoperability, and multiuser skills.

When you use the CLng() data type conversion function on a hexadecimal string with quotation marks and ampersands at each end, for example, CLng("&Hxxxx&"), you may receive the following error message:

   Type Mismatch

For example,

   Val("&H7777")
   Val("&H7777&")
   CLng(&H7777)
   CLng(&H7777&)
   CLng("&H7777")

all correctly return the value 30583, but

   CLng("&H7777&")

returns the error message. STATUS


This behavior is by design.
